The Wren Project

A hub for the St James's community

  • St James’s Church was built by architect, Christopher Wren for the residents of the newly constructed St James’s Square in 1684. 
  • Today it is at the heart of St James’s Community with a focus on mission, social justice, and the arts. 
  • The project will transform the church and the surrounding area through increased greenery, improved accessibility, and the creation of new pedestrian routes.
