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 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...

Finding Stability in Times of Change
In these rather strange and disconcerting times, it is good that there is a plethora of resources and information available to enable people to pray and worship from home.
Richard Frost, one of our Readers, has put together 3 films which could be used to provide a basic structure for a personal Quiet Day. These were developed from a Quiet Day he led at St Lawrence's, Biddulph in January and was due to led at St Luke's Bath just last Saturday. The topic 'Finding Stability in Times of Change' has perhaps taken on a new relevance in this current period.
The films can be watched through http://workrestpray.com/films/
May God bless you and reassure you in the current times.
