|The Parish Church of St James the Deacon is on the north-east corner of Rycroft Avenue and Sherringham Drive in Woodthorpe. The parish began as a mission district in 1952, with its base in Thanet Road where a combined church and hall and later a vicarage were built. The current site was purchased in 1966 to build a church which would be more central to the growing population in the area. The present church, designed by George Pace, was consecrated on 2 July 1971. [The History Files]|
