While the church building is closed for refurbishment we will be worshipping together in the hall. To access the hall go in to the carpark to the right of the church, and then down the side of the hall. The service will be at the normal time of 10.30am.

We will also continue to Zoom the services so if you are unable, or do not feel comfortable, to come to St James the Less you can still join in. If you would like the Zoom codes please contact Rev Chris.


Welcome to St James the Less. People have been gathering to worship God at St James the Less since 1842. We’d love it if you joined us today and helped us be the people of God in this particularly wonderful part of East London. 

Our Sunday morning service starts at 10.30am and lasts about an hour.

You will find our church in St James’ Avenue, just off Old Ford Road, near to Victoria Park and the old London Chest Hospital. There is plenty of on-road parking, free on Sundays, and the church is 10 minutes’ walk from Bethnal Green Tube Station.
