The Centre

The St James’ Centre was built with public funding and opened in 2007 as a meeting place for the local community in the heart of Grimsby town centre.

Built in Ancaster stone and finished throughout with solid oak joinery, The St James’ Centre is fully accessible and offers a tranquil space away from the bustle of the surrounding commercial district.

Reflecting the architecture of its ancient neighbour, the Grade One Listed Grimsby Parish Church, The St James’ Centre offers the best of modern design and technology within its bookable facilities.

The Facilities

For meetings, advice and guidance drop-ins, learning and training, presentations or counselling, this unique building is there for the local community. A warm, friendly welcome is guaranteed for people of all faiths or none.

The Hunter Room

The Hunter Room is equipped with the latest presentation equipment and the furniture can be configured to suit individual needs. Forty people can be seated theatre-style facing the screen and up to twenty four around a boardroom or smaller tables. The Premises Manager is on hand to discuss and action each client’s preferred option.

With large windows and a ceiling lantern, The Hunter Room benefits from day-long natural light. Ceiling fans, which can be set to extract or to draw in fresh air, complement the underfloor heating to maintain a comfortable temperature.

The Study

Small meetings, advice, and counselling sessions work well in The Study. Presentation equipment is available for use in this room on request. With telephone and broadband connections, the room is also offered as a ‘hot-desk’ office.


Booking either or both meeting rooms includes use of the kitchen for the preparation of drinks or for setting out buffets delivered by outside caterers. Fair Trade tea and coffee can be provided for a small charge.

The St James’ Church Coffee Shop is open to Centre users and members of the public several mornings a week, serving a variety of teas, filter coffees and home-made cakes within the main Church building.
