Some history of the Church:

Built: 1840 - 41 Architect: W Rogers Listing: Grade 2

The church is constructed in the Gothic Style. The building was originally planned with the sanctuary beneath the spire and the main entrance was from Stockwell Park Crescent. The orientation was changed in 1880 when the altar was moved and the space under the tower became the main entrance and porch.

The walling is generally built of brick with buff coloured Suffolk bricks used on the west elevation and stock bricks on the side and rear elevations. The tower is constructed in stone and there are stone copings, cills, kneelers, string courses, finials, hood moulds and other details.

The accommodation comprises nave, aisles, a wide chancel and vestries at the east end on the south side. There are galleries above the aisles. Access to the galleries is via separate staircases with external entrances. The galleries are supported on slender iron columns and cranked iron beams.

At the west end there is a flower room, workshop, porches and lobbies. Above the main central entrance lobby is the tower and spire.

The Body (Nave) of the Church

St James’s is a grand and spacious building, maintained in very good order, with excellent facilities for meetings, rehearsals, recordings and public performances.

The body of the Church enjoys underfloor heating, and seats 300 people quite comfortably. Seating is arranged around a large and well-lit raised sanctuary. This sanctuary serves excellently as a stage and can accommodate an orchestra of up to 80 players.

The warm but not too generous acoustic is excellent for choirs and smaller ensembles, and although the Church is large, it is arranged in such a way that makes the relationship between performers and audience quite intimate. St James’s is a very good venue for recordings.


The Coffee Cloister

At the back of the Church there is suite of modern loos and fitted kitchen, and a large open space for serving refreshments.


The Music Vestry & Memorial Chapel

For smaller groups, there is also the Music Vestry & Memorial Chapel. These are smaller spaces. The Music Vestry is suited to a group of 6 people, and the Memorial Chapel to groups of about 30.


The Grand Piano

Come and enjoy St James’s new Steinway Boston Concert Grand Piano! First introduced to the musical world in 1992, The Boston piano is synonymous with everything you would expect from a Steinway piano and features numerous original Steinway patents and classical Steinway characteristics.

Free of all plastics and substitute materials commonly found in pianos today the unique Steinway-designed action assures that nothing is lost in translation from fingertips to keys, to hammers, to strings. 

Use of the grand piano costs an additional £75
