About Us Contacts
St James Street
Taunton
Somerset
TA1 1JS
  St James Church, Taunton, is a parish church within the Diocese of Bath and Wells in the Church of England. Our parish includes the Roughmoor, North Town, Priory and Firepool areas of Taunton. Our membership is drawn partly from within the parish, partly from across the rest of the town, and from nearby villages.

Our services and activities are open to all, and we work with other churches and local inter- church organisations in proclaiming and applying the good news of Jesus Christ.  

We have an evangelical tradition, where we continually refer back to the Bible as our authority, relying on the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to show us new insights into the meaning of the scriptures and to open our eyes to the way we need to apply them to both ourselves and wider society.

Our Vision is to know Christ better and make Him better known.
