About the St James’ Weybridge Church Building
For more than 800 years a church has stood on the site of St James’. The church is not only an important part of Weybridge’s architectural heritage, but also a beautiful landmark that gives Weybridge its unique character.
Although the building of St. James’ was completed only in 1848, it replaced the Church of St. Nicholas , which had served the people of Weybridge for many hundreds of years.
Since its consecration in 1848, St James’ has been enlarged twice. The chancel was enlarged in 1889 and, soon after, the outer south aisle was added. The chancel arch, originally very little higher than the arches in the nave, has also been heightened by ten feet, thereby greatly enhancing the proportions of the building.
St. James is a particularly fine example of the work of John Loughborough Pearson and is often described as the “Cathedral of the Thames Valley” as the spire is a noted local landmark.

The Parish Centre
The Parish Centre contains our Parish Office, along with Halls and associated facilities that are used by both the church and local community.
The Parish Office opening hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9am to 1.30pm.
Groups & Activities
Church Groups using the halls at the Parish Centre include Sunday School, Sunday Crêche, Brownies and the St James’ Handbell Ringers.
The halls are also hired out for various community activities and events including Baby Ballet, Merry Go Round Nursery, Hartbeeps and Perform.
St James’ hosts the Runnymede Foodbank on Thursday afternoons in the church itself and that we have a foodbank donation point at the back of the church.
The charity is an association of local people who help to maintain, preserve, repair and restore the beautiful St James' Church building, which is not only an important part of the town's architectural heritage, but also a beautiful landmark that gives Weybridge its unique character.
Every last Friday of the month except August and December in the Parish Centre, this features a headline (usually local) act together with an hour of music from talented invited showcase acts. Plus an annual charity concert, this year in aid of Elmbridge Rentstart and Runnymede Foodbank
