For nine centuries, St James' Parish Church has sat at the heart of West Teignmouth.
For nine centuries the people of West Teignmouth have gathered in the church to celebrate their weddings and the births of their children. They have gathered to mourn their loved ones and to remember those who were lost at sea or whose final resting place is in a foreign field. For nine centuries the people of West Teignmouth have gathered in St James’ to share and join together in their worship.
Today, in the 21st century, and even in this time of global pandemic, St James' still stands as a constant reminder of our shared Christian heritage. We share in our worship; we share in the pain of bereavement and; we look forward to sharing the celebrations of love in marriage and of new birth.
Today, St James’ is still a place of stillness and calm in the busyness and uncertainty of life.
Today, St James’ remains a Christian presence at the heart of West Teignmouth, and we welcome you...

The Next 200 Years
11 September marked 200 years since St James’ Church took on its unique, octagonal-shaped building. The church was rededicated on that day in 1821 and we held a Fun Day all to celebrate the occasion.
We now look forward to the next 200 years of ministry in St James' church by joining together in 200 days of prayer.
"For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope."
- Jeremiah 29:11
"Over and over again it will happen that if a man or woman, having thought out a problem to the best of their ability, will then lay the whole matter in the hands of God, and genuinely desire that God's Will shall be done in their lives and not their own, it will become perfectly clear what that will is. Over and over again this happens."
- Willian Temple
Lord God as we celebrate 200 years of a church made new in this place show us clearly your way for the next 200 years. Teach us how to pray, that we may grow in faith and numbers and serve your people with joy and delight. Through Christ our Lord, Amen
