Worship at St James’s

Worship at St James’s is offered in the Catholic Tradition of the Church of England; this means our worship is richly sacramental and devotional in character, centred on Christ in the Mass – the Eucharist or Holy Communion – the Sacrament of his Body and Blood.

Mass is celebrated each weekday at 6.30pm (lasting 30mins) and each Sunday morning at 10.30am (a fuller liturgy lasting 1 hr 10 mins). In addition, on certain Sundays in term-time, a Family Mass is celebrated at 12.15pm.

On Sundays, the Mass is enriched by strong preaching, fine sacred music, and the singing of traditional congregational hymns. After Mass there is always a convivial time of hospitality.

From our life of worship, Christ sends us out in mission to the world for which he suffered, died, and rose victorious over the grave.

Christ bids you come!
