St James Church sits at the heart of the charming and historic seaside town of Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and is one of 4 churches in the FYT Parishes of Freshwater, Yarmouth and Totland Bay. The FYT Parishes in turn are part of the emerging West Wight Mission Community, stretching East to West from Calbourne to Totland Bay and North to South from Newtown to Shorwell.  

St James welcomes local residents and visitors alike to services and are pleased to be at the heart of community celebrations throughout the year. Yarmouth is a busy little harbour town with independent shops, a number of restaurants, pubs and places to stay and is easily accessed from the mainland via the Lymington to Yarmouth ferry.  

We’re please to say that, following Covid restrictions, St James’ Church is open again for some Sunday services and for times of personal prayer.
