Welcome to the ‘home’ page of
St. James the Great,

the parish church of Longdon, Staffordshire.
The shells below are links to the main pages in this site, and there are other links just under this panel. We hope you enjoy browsing and that you find the site interesting and informative. If you are not a regular worshipper here, we look forward to seeing you at one of our events or services.


The shell is one of the symbols of St. James. Pilgrims to the shrine of St. James in Santiago de Compostela used to collect scallop shells as a token of their visit.

Ash Wednesday, which this year fell on 6th March, signals the start of Lent, the period of contemplation and abstinence, recalling the time that Jesus spent in the wilderness. For Holy Week and Easter services please click here.
