Church and Cafe – holding

Just as when it was founded almost  900 years ago, St James Priory is a place of Christian worship at the centre of the local community. All are welcome to visit our spectacular medieval church and enjoy the quality local food on offer in our Cafe.

The Priory Church is a haven of peace and serenity in the heart of the busy City Centre.

Many people find solace and refuge here.

We also run a diverse series of events, including lectures, workshops and school holiday activities. Check out the calendar below to see what’s on – we look forward to seeing you!


The HLF Conservation, Renovation and Development work has totally transformed the Church.
