Welcome to St. James Garlickhythe

We are a church in the heart of The City of London, disciples of Jesus Christ, offering worship to God, and serving the people who live and work here. This website gives details of who we are and what we do, and tells the story of our beautiful 17th century church, known as Wren's Lantern, which stands on a site where Christian worship has been offered since Saxon times.

Please come and join us!

If you work or live in the parish, and are interested in worshipping with us, arranging a baptism or marriage, please come along to a service or get in touch.

Church opening time and services

All the liturgies at St James are drawn from the Book of Common Prayer.  The Eucharist at St Michael's is celebrated according to Common Worship.

Morning Prayer is at 7.30am

Evening Prayer is at 5.15pm

Both these services use the Sarum plainsong chants and office hymns.
