WELCOME (BEM-VINDO) TO THE CHURCH OF ST. JAMES, PORTO

OCTOBER SERVICE DETAILS WILL BE POSTED SOON.

  All services at St. James's continue as normal throughout OCTOBER. Every Sunday morning at 11 a.m. there is Sung Eucharist (except for the last Sunday in October, when the 'Service of the Word' takes place - i.e. this is led by the Reader, and is sung, but there is no Communion.)  On that day the chaplain conducts the Communion Service at the chapel at Ponte de Lima.   At St. James's there is also a Thursday morning spoken Communion service every week, led by the chaplain.  Please refer to 'Services' pages.


SPECIAL NOTICE:  It is with great sadness that we announce the death of ROBIN QUINN, historian and history teacher at OBS, and member of the Church.  His funeral will take place tomorrow, Saturday 1st October, at 2pm - at St. James's.    Our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife and family.

​ ​Our chaplain for September and October is once again the Revd. Robin Lee - Tel: 228 329 001 - mobile 916 201 851.  He is accompanied by his wife Anita.  We extend a warm welcome to them both. Their photograph appears below.

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 available at the church.
