St James, Woodside is a vibrant local evangelical Church of England congregation in Horsforth in North West Leeds.

St James exists to show God’s love to our community and in our daily lives by word and action and to join others in following, celebrating and becoming more like Jesus.

We are a friendly and lively church, currently led by Rev Nick Lattimer [curate], that supports modern and traditional styles of worship, accompanied by either the church music team or an organist. Visitors and new members are made welcome and find the atmosphere informal and friendly.

Our congregation spans all age groups and is popular with young families.  There is a carpeted toddler corner in church for use by parents and carers with babies and pre-schoolers during services, the 1st Sunday of every month is All-Age Worship and children’s groups are currently held in the parish centre twice a month during the 10.30am service.  Messy Church runs monthly, 9 times a year, on Sunday afternoons from 4-6pm for pre-school and primary aged children with their families.

The Church’s Parish Centre is modern and well equipped, it hosts many activities during the week including Wheelies, Little Jims Toddler group, NCT groups and Pilates.  It is available for private hire and is in frequent demand; please contact Church Office for more details.
