    This is the new web site for St James Church North Cray. Our old web site, that we shared with All Saints in Footscray, is no longer in use, but will re-direct visitors to here.

    We hope you will find it interesting as you browse through our new site, which you will see developing over the coming months. If you have any suggestions regarding the site or want to  comment upon it, then please email webmanager@stjamesnorthcray.org.uk.

    "Welcome to St James Church, - the Church of England parish church serving North Cray.
    The church building is situated on the North Cray Road on the edge of the beautiful Footscray Meadows. There has been a place of worship on this site for many centuries, although much of the original building was restored in the nineteenth century. The church is well-loved in the North Cray community. For a map of the immediate area, please click here

    There is one service each Sunday morning at 9.30am lasting about an hour. This is usually a service of Holy Communion, with hymns, bible readings and a talk which leads us into the sharing of the bread and wine of communion. On the second Sunday of each month there is an All-Age service at 9.30am, suitable for all ages with lively singing and a rather more informal atmosphere.

    In August 2018, St James Church, North Cray became part of the Bexley Team partnering with the parish churches of St John's, Bexley, St Mary's, Bexley and St Barnabas, Joydens Wood.

    Please do explore our website and visit our church here in North Cray where I know you will be given a warm welcome"
