Welcome to our web-site which we hope will give you a taste of life at St James’ Church, Islington.
Noted for its spire and its ring of bells, St James’ describes itself as a modern catholic parish within the Church of England. We are committed to exploring Christianity in a way which balances genuine faith and intelligent enquiry with the demands of living in London today.
Our main service each Sunday morning, the 10am Parish Mass, is rooted in the historic forms and traditions of the western Church as found in Common Worship – with a balance of familiar and more contemporary hymns. We do not believe that being sacred means being solemn.
St James’ Church can be found to the south of Essex Road, near the corner of Prebend Street and Packington Street, just ten minutes from the Angel tube station.
