to the website of the Parish of St James, Clacton, with St Christopher, Jaywick

We are a Church of England parish located in the popular seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea, on the Sunshine Coast of Essex. We are part of the Diocese of Chelmsford.


We meet for worship on a Sunday and during the week, and we offer both traditional and more informal services. Our worship seeks to place an emphasis on Bible-based preaching and on sharing together in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Music is an important element of our worship.


A warm welcome awaits you at all of our services and events at St James’

and St Christopher’s.

We have a new priest!

We’re pleased to announce that Fr. Justin Hutcherson has agreed
to be St. James’s parish priest. We’re looking forward to Fr. Justin, his
wife Anna and twin baby boys joining us in February 2018.


"All God's creation is very good"
