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 toward the bottom of the page. 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.

Harvest thanksgiving is now over and we look to a more sombre or reflective time as we approach a special Remembrance Sunday which this year falls on 11th November. We remember the end of ‘the war to end all wars’ and those who were lost in those battles. We have some transparent ‘Tommy’ cut-outs sat in church to represent those who might have been with us had war not intervened. Follow the link to find out more. https://www.therebutnotthere.org.uk/. We also hope to display a cascade of poppies in remembrance.
