Welcome to Saint James the Great

Ours is a Parish Church in the Anglican communion (Church of England), serving a rural community between the City of Oxford and the market town of Abingdon. Located in the Diocese of Oxford, St James is part of a cluster of parishes which also includes Kennington and Sunningwell.

We are exploring together what Christian faith means in the 21st Century and supporting each other in living as Jesus taught us to. St James welcomes anyone who has an interest in the Christian faith, at whatever stage of their journey. We offer a range of services, in the main church and elsewhere, and other meetings for discussion, prayer and social gathering.

Our Church Family includes people living in the village of Radley and others who come from further afield. Our ages range from 0 to 100! A Sunday Club (Sunday School) caters for the needs of primary school age children and our YPs group supports teenagers. There is also a creche at our main Sunday morning service.

As a Parish Church, we serve the community with Baptism services for children and adults, Wedding services,  Funerals and Memorial services. Please contact the Vicar with preliminary enquiries about these events.
