St James the Deacon is a welcoming, friendly church serving God and the community in Woodthorpe, Acomb Park and Foxwood, along with parts of Dringhouses West and Acomb within the city of York.
The Parish was formed in the 1950’s to meet the needs of new new housing being built in South West York and the current church built in 1970 with the Hall added in 2010.
We are the only church dedicated to James the Deacon, an Italian misionary who came to Yorkshire and Northumbria in the seventh century and ministered to the people there in dangerous circumstances.
We invite you to find out more through exploring this website and would love to welcome you in person to our church and hall.
