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.

We’re in November already and although Christmas items have been in the shops for weeks already, we think next, not about Christmas but about Advent. This the beginning of the church’s year and is a season of reflection and waiting as we contemplate our Lord’s second coming. We are encouraged to watch in case we are caught unawares. Do join us during Advent as we take a quiet approach to the joy and adoration that is associated with Christmas. Advent Sunday is 2nd December this year.
