A prayer for those who have died from the Coronavirus

Loving and merciful God,
we pray for the souls of all who have died during the Coronavirus pandemic;
          for those of all ages, young and old, whose lives have been cut short;
          for those who through difficult circumstances died alone;
          for those whose death was sudden and with no time to prepare for it.
Ever-present God,
we hold up these precious lives to you,
giving thanks for the love that has been given and received.
May they be granted peace, now and forever.

Donate to St James

The clergy are available for pastoral care, whether you come to church or not, and would appreciate being advised of any need. Please telephone: 916 201 851.

Whenever possible the clergy keep Friday as their “free” day. 

St jamesWELCOME to St James’ Anglican Chaplaincy. The Church is more than a building, however splendid it might be - and St James’ houses a lively international English-speaking congregation in the Anglican tradition. The church has served the English-speaking community in Porto for more than 300 years. Worship is the mainspring of all that we do and our ministry is to the international community in Porto. We warmly welcome enquiries from couples interested in celebrating their wedding ceremony in an Anglican (Church of England) church in Porto. Click on the link to our weddings page for more information about organising your ceremony in Porto – one of the most romantic and exciting cities in Western Europe! Enquiries about Baptism (christening), Confirmation and Funeral services are also encouraged. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find links here that will help you to keep in touch, and by which those who do not know St James’ might learn of it. Whether you are a resident of Portugal or a visitor, whoever and wherever you may be, we welcome you. We look forward to meeting you.

Visiting Choirs
We welcome visiting choirs – local and from abroad – and our services may be sung by them. St James’ is also a popular concert venue. To enquire about bringing your choir to St James’, and or hiring the Well House please contact the Chaplain in the first instance.
