When the decision was taken to re-develop the St. James`s buildings in 2007, we were seeking not only to make our premises suitable for a church in the 21st century – but also to offer facilities that would be a valuable asset for the whole town.
The new name – The St. James’s Church Centre – reflects this wish. We now have a resource well-suited to meet the needs of groups of all ages. It provides a meeting place for numbers large and small.
We hope that those who use our premises will want to come back to this attractive and modern building.
The church building has been split in two.
The Sanctuary is now located on the upper floor. Though the primary purpose is for worship, weddings and funerals, it is also available for concerts, drama, workshops, conferences and similar events.
Similar flexibility has been built into the rest of our church. See our facilities section for more details.
