January 7th 2021
Due to the very high numbers of Covid-19 cases locally we have taken the decision to suspend public worship, and to move our Sunday worship to ‘Zoom’. If you would like to join us then please email Chris, the Vicar (rev.newmanday@gmail.com) and he will give you the information and access codes.

Please do contact Chris if you would like to talk or pray, either by email (see above) or phone 020 8980 1612.

And in these distressing days be assured of our prayers and God’s love for you.


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.
