This corner of South Islington is changing dramatically as the redevelopment of the Packington Estate alters the skyline and the style of local housing close to the Church.
Approximately half of the old flats have now been demolished and St James’ looks forward to taking an active part in the new community that is emerging.
Church members are closely involved in local neighbourhood associations, especially in a strong commitment to the care of the environment in local parks and squares.
We have good relationships with our local schools. We provide a speaker for assemblies and class teaching and welcome regular visits to Church from school students.
