Reverend Prebendary Janet Waterfield is Vicar of St. James’ and of Christ Church in Lichfield.

Sadly, Janet has decided to retire at the end of June 2024. We will miss her greatly. We now await the formulation of plans to take St. James' to the next phase of God's work in Longdon.

The Vicarage is at 95, Christchurch Lane, Lichfield, WS13 8AL.

We have re-organised our worship pattern to include a new all-age worship on the first Sunday of the month. This allows us to hold a full set of services whilst allowing Janet to serve both churches.
The church building is usually open during daylight hours though times do vary according to the weather and other commitments. You are always welcome to look around even if you can’t visit us for a service. Please sign the visitors’ book, and take time to pray. The Stonywell Chapel is available for private prayer, and various prayer resources are available there for your use.
