Thank you for visiting our website.
The warmest of welcomes awaits you
here at St James' Church.
People of all ages and from many walks of life are members of our church. Inspired and strengthened by God, we serve our community in many ways, sharing God’s love as Jesus taught us to do.
Our main Sunday service is Holy Communion at 10am, on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month. Every 4th Sunday of the month there is a Family Service at 10am. For those who want to start Sunday with a quiet service there is also Holy Communion at 8am, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.
Baptisms are usually at 12 - noon on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, and also the 5th Sunday when there is one.
We are able to celebrate weddings, to offer baptism and to give thanks to God for a person’s life at a funeral, to people living in our parish.
St James' is the historic church in Sutton-on-Hull, a Grade I Listed Building dating from 1349, which many people enjoy exploring when they visit the village. Former residents, and many other people with past family connections here, come here for special events in their lives, where St James' timeless history means a great deal to them. Our churchyard has been the burial place of thousands of residents whose many descendants, over the centuries, are now sprinkled to the farthest corners of this earth.
