The St James' Church Building is usually open for private prayer each day,

We sometimes have services or events in the building during these times, which may mean it is not available for private prayer. Please contact 0121 745 8896 on weekday mornings if you wish to check. 

News and Updates

Covid precautions: It is now a legal requirement for all adults to wear a face-covering whilst within the church building, unless exempt. We request that face-coverings are adjusted to cover nose and mouth, including whilst singing.

Safety remains our top priority, and we will continue to review the situation. 

Please keep checking back here for updates.
