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.

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.
