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.

Stay and Play Group, Pilling

We are hoping to start a group for toddlers and babies that will take place weekly. The group would be for anyone under school age along with an accompanying adult (parent, grandparent, relative …)


Proposed day is Wednesday, running from 10.00am until 11.30am using the
School Room at Pilling Methodist Church and starting at the beginning of March 2020.


We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the smooth running of the group and hearing from anyone who would be interested in coming along to join the group.


For further information or to express an interest in coming to or helping with the group, please contact Jess Basquill, children and family worker, at  or 07391986399.
