LONGTON PARISH CHURCH, in the city of Stoke-on-Trent
Standing tall on a bluff just out of the middle of the town, St James' Church, Longton, looks every inch the mother church of the area. Built in 1834, it pre-dates the Victorian age; but recent restoration and re-ordering have made it a magnificent setting for the spiritual life of the Christian community, as well as a welcoming place for community activities. It is in use seven days a week for activities as diverse as slimming groups and the Brownies; for sad occasions like funerals, or glorious celebrations like weddings; for quiet prayer, and for the splendour of Benediction.
We serve a community of 11,000 people, including some of the very neediest neighbourhoods in the country. We are a congregation who enjoy the Eucharist, welcome strangers, and delight in loving and helping one another and those in need.
Fr Stephen will be leaving the parish at Easter, 2013, to take up the post of Team Rector of Staveley, in Derbyshire. We ask your prayers for the future of priestly ministry in Longton.
