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.

One of our kneelers

June 16th saw us celebrate Trinity Sunday. This is the last Sunday before entering a long period of ‘Ordinary Time’. Ordinary doesn’t mean boring, but it lacks some of the more dramatic and well-known festivals. We celebrate our patron Saint, James the Great, on July 28th and our regular coffee mornings continue. Do join us.

We are on Facebook too!
