The congregation of St. James' Porto offers a very warm welcome to newcomers and visitors .

As part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, we are pleased to invite you to come and join our services and attend Holy Communion with us if you are a communicant in any Trinitarian church. If you are not, you are cordially invited to come to the Altar for a blessing. 

Last year (2015) marked the 200th anniversary of the church building's existence (the building of a smaller chapel was begun in 1815, and this was later incorporated in the larger edifice of 1867-8, which exists today).  Various celebratory events took place, and a commemorative booklet/brochure was published, free copies of which are still available at the church.
