St James, PO10 7DJ
Welcome to St James', a church in the heart of Emsworth where everyone is welcome.
St James' is one of the 2 churches in the Parish of Warblington with Emsworth. Along with our sister church, St. Thomas a Becket in Warblington, we offer a wide variety of worship from the informality of Breakfast Church in our hall or Church Garden to more conventional Holy Communion Services in Church. Whatever the style we are responding to the experience of God's deep love for us, which has transformed and renewed our lives giving us peace and joy. Please see our parish website for further information https://www.warblingtonwithemsworth.org/our-parish/
