Thank you for visiting the St James's Paddington website. We are an Anglican church, near the centre of London, and we welcome worshippers and visitors from all over London and from many parts of the world. As part of the Church of England, St James's is an inclusive church and is pleased to be able to offer hospitality to everyone.
St James's is open for visitors most days and the church provides a much needed space for quiet prayer in the heart of Paddington. The church is only 2 minutes walk from the mainline station and Lancaster Gate tube is also just around the corner. It is also possible to come in and light a candle for your prayer intention.
You are welcome to visit St James's and discover our heritage - many famous names are associated with this church: Alexander Fleming, Oscar Wilde, George Edmund-Street, Robert Baden-Powell & J M Barrie.
