Welcome to

St. James, Bolton


Steve is moving on!

Our current vicar, Rev Stephen Lees has taken a role with the NHS as the Hospital Chaplain at the Bradford Hospitals.

Steve has been with us for 8 years and will be greatly missed.

But don't worry, we have an amazing team of leaders in the church and we also have a fantastic programme of visiting preachers for the coming weeks.

Please keep the St James family in your prayers as we begin the process of finding our next vicar.


We are open!

We are excited to announce that we are now open for public worship on Sundays at 10.30am.

There will be music, but unfortunately no congregational singing for the time being. We are continuing to find new ways to worship God until restrictions are eased.

All visitors will need to wear a face covering (apart from those exempt), and social distancing measures will be in place and people are asked not to mingle and to leave the building straight after the service ends.
