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.

 Welcome to our website

The church building is open daily during daylight hours, though the times will depend on individuals’ availability to lock and unlock. Do come and have a look round. Stay in its quietness and experience its peace.

Why not come along to our JAM Club for babies, toddlers and their carers. Mondays during school term times. Follow the JAM Club link.

We are delighted to be resurrecting from two years ago, a history talk by our own John Shand. This should have taken place in 2020 but will now be on 12th August this year. We will be pleased to welcome Bishop Michael to this evening.

Please read the letter from Rev. Jan regarding our worrying financial position following the pandemic. Your help to keep the lights on and the church door open is urgently needed.

In the light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, please read a letter from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.
