North Pole Experience and Craft Market at St James Church

St James Church

St James has been at the heart of the Muswell Hill community for over one hundred years. If you haven’t come on a Sunday or to one of our various mid-week community events, we’d love to tell you more about what we do here. Stop by our Church Life stall. We’d love for you to join our St James Church community.

We are also raising money for essential roof repairs. Please consider donating to our “Raise the Roof” fund.

North Pole ExperienceAt “It’s a Wonderful Muswell” we will be holding the North Pole Experience outside.  It is your chance to get up close with Santa’s reindeer, grab a selfie with our elf, and warm up with a mulled wine and mince pie.  All funds raised go to the Raise the Roof appeal.

Inside we will be having seasonal entertainment – keep checking back to see who is confirmed and our ever-popular craft market.
