Our 2020 PCC report is now published here.



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”.
