Dear all

As the 2nd lockdown begins we must close our doors once again for public worship. We will return to praising God and being disciples together using Zoom on Sunday mornings. If you would like to join us then please contact me and I can give you the Zoom info.

I know that this 2nd lockdown is unsettling and may well cause you all sorts of emotions and so please do contact me if you have any questions, queries or concerns, or would simply like someone to talk to.

With love and prayers in these ever changing days.

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.
