St James Church is a Church of England Evangelical Church located on the Lion Farm Estate at junction 2 of the M5 in the Borough of Sandwell. The Church was established in its current place when the Lion Farm Estate was built in 1964. The church aspires to be at the heart of the community and to bring the message of Jesus to all who live nearby. It combines a tradition of the evangelical Anglican church with a recognition of modern needs and a desire to reach out to all who need Jesus.

The church has run youth work for many years and in recent years this has developed into a desire to focus on both youth work and regeneration issues, the church works in partnership with nearby organisations both secular and Christian to meet its mission statements.
