Who We Are
St James’s Church is an evangelical Anglican church based in Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, the largest island off the coast of England. We are separated from the mainland by the Solent, a narrow strip of sea famous for its yachting. Situated off the south coast, we enjoy some of the best weather in Britain!
Our ministry is based on the clear teaching of God’s Word and the application of biblical principles to daily living. We focus on being open to God through corporate worship, private prayer and daily reliance upon the power of the Holy Spirit.
As a Church of England proprietary chapel with an ordained clergyman, we enjoy an independence from the Anglican Church, yet remain committed to its protestant and evangelical practices and doctrines. We are proud to be partnered with other gospel centred churches on the Isle of Wight and across the Solent Region.
