St James the Greater is a vibrant place, a worshipping community which has much to offer people of all ages
The Church of St James the Greater, in the Diocese of Leicester, in the East Midlands, can be found just to the south of the centre of the City of Leicester, on the main A6, opposite Victoria Park.
With a design influenced by the great cathedral of Torcello in the Venetian lagoon, it was built between 1899 and 1914, to serve the expanding city of Leicester.
There is a thriving congregation, and the worship is varied, maintaining the best of the Anglican tradition, liturgically and musically, attracting people from all walks of life and from all over the county of Leicestershire and beyond.

Following the retirement on Advent Sunday of Canon Glynn Richerby as Vicar, the parish is now in an Interregnum, which means literally, an interval between rulers or more generally in this context, an interval between the periods of office of two incumbents in a parish.
During a vacancy the Churchwardens and the Area Dean legally become sequestrators - the Bishop's officers in the parish - and they should be contacted with any matters to do with the parish. Apart from this change of leadership, everything else in parish life will continue as normal.
The PCC are in the process of preparing the Parish Profile and as soon as that is complete, the Section 11 meeting will be held and the vacancy advertised. Information will then be published on this website.
In the meantime, if you require any additional information, please contact the Church Administrator, .
