About Us

St James is a growing, all age church in the city of Carlisle, with a particular focus on the community of Denton Holme, Long Sowerby and Cummersdale.

We are an evangelical Anglican church, that seeks to be open to God’s Holy Spirit, and faithful to the teaching of the Bible.

We have two churches, St James Church on St James Street in Denton Holme, where we hold services every Sunday at 10.30am and 6.30pm, and St James Church in Cummersdale, with services every Sunday at 10.30am. Please click HERE for more information about our Sunday services.

Together we are committed to glorifying Jesus, seeking his Kingdom and living wholeheartedly as his disciples, praying that he will use us to share his transforming love with our friends and family, parish, and town, this is summed up in our mission statement:

  • Loving Jesus
  • Serving the community
  • Growing disciples

Two Rivers Mission Community

Two Rivers Logo BSt James is part of the Two Rivers Mission Community, a group of four Church of England parishes, and two Methodist Churches, working together in mission to reach people in Carlisle with the love of God.

As a mission community our vision of what we are seeking to do is summed up in the God For All vision statement:

By 2020 every person in Cumbria of all ages and backgrounds will have an opportunity to discover more of God and God’s purpose for their lives, so that they will discover more of Jesus and the Good News and become followers of Jesus within a Christian community.

We look forward to welcoming you

Everyone is welcome to join us, wherever you may be on your spiritual journey. We trust that you will find us to be friendly, authentic and committed to a faith in Jesus that is relevant to everyday life. We look forward to meeting you.
