Sadly, to ensure we all play our part in reducing the spread of Coronavirus, we have taken the decision to close the church from today. Let us all pray we will soon be able to worship together again and enter this beautiful church for quiet reflection.

We will keep this page updated as soon as we have more information. Please take care and keep safe, we will see you soon 🙂

St. James’ is a Church of England parish church at the heart of the community in a thriving village between Harrogate and Pateley Bridge, in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are a friendly worshipping community with a welcoming Sunday Club, a strong musical tradition including a robed choir, and a range of groups and activities. Click on the various links to see what we can offer.

We are part of a joint Benefice comprising the parishes of St. Thomas a Becket, Hampsthwaite with Felliscliffe & St. Thomas the Apostle, Killinghall and St. James, Birstwith.

We hope you find what you are looking for on these pages and we would be delighted to welcome you, whether as a visitor or to join us regularly in worship and fellowship.
