Welcome to St James Church












St. James is a lively, bible-based, family church. We are the Church of England parish church for Denton Holme, Longsowerby and Cummersdale in the City of Carlisle.  This year marks our 150th Anniversary in Denton Holme (and 90th at Cummersdale) and so we will be having lots of special events to celebrate.  Please visit our 150th Anniversary pages to see what is happening.

Our aim as a fellowship is, and has been over 150 years, to introduce people to Jesus Christ and then to encourage them to grow in their faith.

There are services of worship every Sunday morning and evening, complete with a children’s and young people’s programme on Sunday mornings. You can find the detailed service times here.

Throughout the week, all over the parish, different groups of people spend time together praying, learning, supporting each other, ministering to others, doing practical things or just having a good time together.

Whatever your age, your needs or your talents, there’s something you can get involved in. Why not meet the staff team?
