From 6 June 2021, St James will be starting our Sunday service at 9:30am to accomodate Elim Pentecostal Church who will be using St James building for their service at 11:30am.
Due to the current ongoing situation regarding COVID-19, Church will look different for the foreseeable future. There will be a Sunday morning service at 9:30am, this will be a Morning Prayer style service. There will be a "Covid secure" Holy Communion service on the 1st and 3rd Sunday's of each month.
Please ensure all social distancing measures and guidelines are observed fully whilst in the building, for your own safety and the safety of other people who may use the building. Please click here for a full Risk Assessment.

At St James Hope, we consider ourselves a “work in progress” with many ideas of developing our connections with our local community and are very proud of our welcoming reputation. Our mission statement “HOPE IS WHERE WE ARE AND HOPE IS WHAT WE HAVE!” was not arrived at by chance.
St James (Hope) Church is a grade II listed building. Built in 1861, in the English Gothic style of the 15th century. There are some magnificent stained glass windows. The West window of St James Church, Hope is of particular interest, being one of the finest examples of the Belgian artist Capronnier.
