Welcome to St James Priory

A very special place – healing, heritage and hospitality in the heart of Bristol

Healing
Our residential support services for vulnerable people are open to all in need, whatever their background or circumstance.

Heritage
The former Benedictine Priory of St James is the oldest building in Bristol! It has a fascinating story to tell and has witnessed almost a millennia of Bristol’s development.

Hospitality
Like our Benedictine predecessors we extend a warm welcome to all who visit.

Our refectory café serves delicious refreshments and our well-equipped meeting rooms and central locality make us an ideal venue for conferences and community group bookings.

St James is still a place of Christian (Roman Catholic) worship and devotion but  is open to all people from any faith or none.

Our Core Values are:

  • Compassion
  • Acceptance
  • Respect
  • Empathy

The Priory is a Catholic Church and is open between 10am and 5pm from Monday to Friday and on selected Saturdays during the year.

MASS IS CELEBRATED ON SUNDAYS AT  8am.
