St James Church takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines. We recognise that the care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of St James Church.
Green Alter Cloth
Green symbolizes: hope, life, anticipation
When used: Ordinary time, a season focused on the Lord's three-year public ministry, His teachings and miracles; a reminder that the mission of the church is to share the hope and life of Christ with the world. It is used from the day after the Presentation until Shrove Tuesday, and from the day after Pentecost until the eve of All Saints’ Day, except when other provision is made.

Our 2020 PCC report is now published here.
There is no longer any need to book a place at our church services.
Singing is now allowed and we very much look forward to hearing you all again.
We ask that you continue to wear a face covering in church., including whilst singing if you can.
We will leave both sets of doors open to allow air to circulate, and sanitise all touch points where necessary.
We will continue to bring Holy Communion to you in your seats, and the peace will be waving to each other.
Books will still be places in the pews before the services and ask you to place them in the box at the back at the end.
We will not be reinstating coffee yet, but hope you catch up with everyone in the churchyard safely after the service.
St James Church is in Old Milverton Village, but our congregation is drawn from all parts of Leamington, Warwick and Kenilworth. We hold a service every Sunday morning at 10.30am and offer a family friendly, fairly traditional style of worship. On the last Wednesday afternoon of each month, we have a quiet, reflective half hour service to help us recharge our batteries midweek.
The current church was built in 1880, but this has been a place of worship for nine hundred years. Our churchyard is on several footpaths that run across to Leamington and down to the River Avon at the Saxon Mill, Warwick, and is a lovely place to stop and relax on a sunny day, to take in the views and soak up the peaceful atmosphere.
We think of ourselves as the St James ‘family’, but a family that welcomes new members and enjoys meeting new people.
As part of the Diocese of Coventry we have a shared mission of “Worshipping God…making new disciples…transforming communities”.
