Who we are

The English-speaking community of Oporto is made up of people from many backgrounds, cultures and nationalities.  St. James has an international congregation with members from many different parts of the world, including people from a wide variety of denominations and traditions of worship. 

St James Church is part of the Church of England, within the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar, which in turn is in the Diocese in Europe.

We extend a warm welcome to people of all denominations and nationalities. All visitors to Porto are welcome to join us, whether they be short-stay tourists or longer-stay sojourners. Our services are in English.
