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, St James' still stands as a constant reminder of our shared Christian heritage. We gather to share in our worship; we welcome the celebrations of love in marriage and of new birth; we share in the pain of bereavement.
Today, St James’ is a place of stillness and calm in the busyness of life.
Today, St James’ remains a Christian presence at the heart of West Teignmouth, and we welcome you...

As a result of vandalism, unsociable and unruly behaviour within the churchyard it has been agreed by the PCC that all three churchyard gates will be locked from 3.00pm until 9.00am every weekday
Life with St Benedict offers daily reflections to help enable personal spiritual growth and prayer.
‘In a time when many are seeking space, silence and spiritual depth,’ says Richard, ‘the Rule of St Benedict retains relevance in a world where change is often feared, stability can be elusive, and busyness interferes with listening to God.’
‘In this companion to the Rule, Richard Frost shares his own experience as a Benedictine oblate. He offers a distilled wisdom for daily reflection to help us deepen our love of God and neighbour,’ writes Rt Revd Robert Atwell, Bishop of Exeter.
