Sutton St James is a village and civil parish in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, England, about 4 miles (6.4 km) south west of Long Sutton.

Lying in the Lincolnshire Fens, Sutton St James did not exist at the time of Domesday Book of 1086. Sutton St James was a chapelry to the parish of Long Sutton until it was created a civil parish in 1866.

The parish church is dedicated to Saint James, and is unusual in that the chancel and tower are disconnected, the nave having been destroyed during the Interregnum, when Oliver Cromwell was Lord Protector of England.

St James Tower is grade II* listed dating from the 15th century, and being restored in 1879 and 1894.

St James Chancel is grade II listed, and dates from the 15th century although heavily restored in 1879 and 1894, with a 20th-century extension. The font bowl is 15th-century.
