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 normally operates from the Parish Office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays (apart from Bank Holidays.) - but see opposite.
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.
NEW PRAYER COURSE
An on-line prayer course starts shortly. See Prayer Course
tab, or contact Naomi for more information.
COVID - 19 UPDATE: 30 NOVEMBER 2020
From 2nd December, public acts of worship are permitted to restart - see Calendar Tab for details.
The church building is open during the day for private prayer, as usual. Parish churches in Hambleton, Preesall, Stalmine, and Pilling are
open from 10.00 - 15.00.
FUNERALS are still permitted.
The total number allowed to attend a funeral in church is thirty. This figure does not include the minister/lay leader, the verger, or the
organist but it DOES include the choir and anyone reading or eulogising.
It also includes any funeral directors' staff, apart from while they are
actively helping (e.g. carrying the coffin). The
wearing of face coverings, throughout the service, is a legal requirement for
everyone apart from the minister/lay leader, readers of Bible passages while
they are reading, people giving eulogies, organists whilst at the
organ, and choirs while they are singing.
Interment of ashes
can take place subject to a maximum of fifteen people.
If you want to know more about
any of these issues, please ring Fr. Andy on 01253 799895.
Thank you, and may God bless you and keep you, your families and those you love, safe and well.
