We are the local Parish Church seeking to serve all in our community. We are broad and inclusive with a strong musical tradition and offer a warm welcome to all who wish to share the journey of faith with us.

Latest update re COVID-19 (September 2021)

Although restrictions have been generally lifted allowing us to meet in church for regular services once again, we are still asking all visitors to church services to continue to wear face masks, to sanitise their hands and sign in for track and trace purposes.

Contact details are available here. Additional information about local responses, including the Food Hub hosted at St James on Saturday mornings, is available via the Queen Edith’s Community Forum.

We are part of the Church of England within the South Cambridge Deanery of the Diocese of Ely and often collaborate with St John the Evangelist, Hills Road and St Andrew’s, Cherry Hinton.

Please contact us, if you would like to know more about St. James.
