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.


Lyrics and Lunch

This new group which started on 14th June is for people living with dementia, and their carers. We sing some old familiar songs,

learn a few new ones and enjoy a chat together over a lunch of soup and sandwiches, cake and fresh fruit, tea, coffee or juice.


At each session there are people with Dementia Friendly and First Aid training and Food Hygiene qualifications.

Our key leaders have DBS certificates.

The cost is £3 per person to cover the cost of food.


Held in St Oswald’s Church Hall
