Its doors have welcomed everyone from Amy Winehouse to Young Fathers, St Vincent to The National and beyond, not to mention the hundreds of you who have been lucky enough to have ‘The Church’ experience. It’s been home to so many magic moments and after two decades the building is in need of care and we would ask you to consider donating to The St James’ Church Restoration Fund to help keep this historic space lit up for another two decades. You can donate here.
