Church Facilities

There are no toilets in the Church as yet, though that is in our long term plan.

For services etc. we have a key for the Kingston Reading Room opposite the Church which has full disabled access and the Pub, (just next door) facilities are normally open even when it is closed.  Gents is almost opposite the Church. Ladies around the back of the pub.

There is disabled access to the Church including a ramp into the Churchyard and small portable ramps are stored just inside the door to get into the Church itself.  There is also a hearing loop on during services.


Car Parking at St. James the Less

There is no dedicated car park for the church.  However it is possible to park outside the Church along the ramp wall, but there are only a few places. Some visitors park in the Dolphin Inn car park opposite.

When we hold events in the Church a nearby field is usually opened for Church parking and is clearly signed.

We await the appointment of our new Vicar
