Welcome to St. James, Thrapston!

St. James is the historic Parish Church in the centre of Thrapston. The present building has been a beautiful place of worship since the 13th century. Today, it is a growing, welcoming, biblically-based family church with both formal and informal services at 9.30 am. Particularly popular is our Family Worship on the first Sunday of the month.

The Church is open to visitors every Saturday between 10 and 12 noon.

Across the Nine Arches Bridge is St. Nicholas Islip which dates from the 15th century. A mile and a quarter along the River Nene lies the picturesque village of Denford with Holy Trinity Church built in the 13th century. Together with St. James they form the United Benefice of Thrapston, Islip and Denford

The aim in all our churches is to communicate the Good News of Christ in a way which is interesting, intelligible, challenging and encouraging so that we can grow in our understanding and love for God.

All services are taken from Common Worship with music predominantly from Mission Praise hymn book.
