St James’s Church has stood since Norman times. Down the centuries, our church has witnessed to the Christian Faith in Biddenham and we continue that witness through our worship, which is centred on the Eucharist and which sets a premium on reverence, with a mixture of traditional and contemporary services and hymns. We hope that our church extends a friendly and warm welcome to all worshippers and visitors and those who celebrate the rites of passage of their families within our ancient walls. We aim to serve the whole community through a wide range of organizations, activities and events, which seek to include both families and all age groups. We have a regular Parish Eucharist at 9am on Sundays, with a Family Eucharist on the 1st Sunday of each month. There is also a lively Explorers group for youngsters which meets in the Church Barn at 9am on Sundays during term time.
St James’s is a parish church in the Diocese of St. Albans and we are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The clergy team also covers All Saints, Kempston and we do share some joint services and activities with them. Our church is open to visitors every day from 9.30 am until 5.30 pm and there are opportunities for silent prayer and reflection. If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact one of the team or some other appropriate person.
We look forward to meeting you when you follow up your visit to this website with an actual visit to our church in person.
