St James Church, Stalmine

Hello, and welcome to our website, and to St. James'.  We are an Anglican parish church, situated in the Over Wyre village of Stalmine, about 8 miles north-east of Blackpool.  Our services are spirit-filled, often informal and always friendly, and visitors are always offered a warm welcome.

The Vicar for the five Over Wyre parishes is Father Andy Shaw, to whom enquiries should be directed.

Please see the "Church Activites - Calendar" tab for details of services and other events.  Also, see the "Prayer" tab for details of the monthly prayer diary.


In 2007, the church building was extended, and we now have much more space that includes a parish office, kitchen, toilets, larger meeting rooms and extra facilities for our young people. There is a crèche in church, a loop system, a good sound system and  a video projector screen. We are child- and wheelchair-friendly and have extra facilities for those with special needs, such as disabled toilets and ramps.  We have recently re-carpeted and redecorated the main meeting room, and provided it with new chairs, so it is looking really smart.

The village Post Office operates from the Parish Office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays (apart from Bank Holidays.)      

We hope you find this web site interesting and helpful, and enjoy learning more about our church and area.  Come and join us, you are most welcome.  (If, in your view, the web site could be improved, please let us know!)


With every blessing in the name of Jesus.



I have recorded a service for Pentecost which will be available on my Facebook page plus the Facebook community pages for the various Over Wyre Villages and others on Sunday morning.   Hopefully you will join me for this (virtually) at 10.30 on Sunday.


I know some of you are not Facebook users so, hopefully, the link below will take you to an alternative version that you can download in advance, ready for the service.  Please note, this is unlikely to work on a mobile phone; you'll need a desktop/laptop.


You can find the hymn words on the Pentecost tab.

Thank you.


Stay safe.


Fr Andy
