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.

Chairs Appeal 2013
For a good number of years now, the chairs within the Church have been getting rather dated and are fairly uncomfortable. After much deliberation and consultation the PCC has now decided that the Nave and Lady Chapel chairs will be replaced with the York chair.
We are confident that everyone connected with St James will wish to support this project and we therefore invite you to make a donation as generously as your means allow.
See our Chair Appeal page for more information.
