Church of England Diocese of Manchester St. James Daisy Hill

St. James the Great

 “A welcoming church community and a beautiful building”  is the way visitors describe St James the Great church, located at the heart of the old village of Daisy Hill in 1881. Now much expanded Daisy Hill has a growing population and alongside our regular worship, which is centred around the celebration of Holy Communion, we host many open door events for the wider community, support Urban Outreach and charitable organisations.

Welcome to our ‘bit’ of the Church of England’s A Church Near You website. We are trying to use it to share useful information with our worshiping congregation and to communicate with wider communities. You may find items you might not have expected to find under the various labels, we post items were they work best, so please explore and have a good look around using the tabs on the left and then any other tabs in that section. Scroll to the bottom of a page and you may find there are additional pages to move on to offering more information and links to other interesting and useful websites.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our ‘bit’ of ACNY and would value any comments that would help us improve our contribution. Please feel welcome to use the Get in touch email form on the tab on the left to contact us about anything on our webpages or for information about St James’ church Daisy Hill.

St. James Church is OPEN FOR IN-CHURCH SERVICES on Wednesday at 10:30 and Sunday at 10am. We are slowly relaxing the restrictions imposed by the COVID 19 pandemic and responding to the changing circumstances week by week to try to keep everyone safe.

Along side ACNY web pages we also have our own dedicated  website please use the direct link under Get in Touch below.

Safe Spaces: a service for victims and survivors of church-related abuse

Safe Spaces is a free and independent support service for anyone who has experienced abuse in relation to the Church of England, the Church in Wales, or the Catholic Church of England and Wales. This could be abuse by someone who holds any role in the church or is linked to participating in a church-led activity or group.

If you have been affected, however long ago, Safe Spaces can provide you with support. You do not have need to have told the police or the church authorities, and you do not have to still be involved with the church. Your information will not be shared without your consent, unless you or someone else is in immediate danger. Safe Spaces can provide a range of help, including advocating with authorities and other agencies, giving emotional support, providing information (including information on church and police procedures), understanding your needs and working together on individual support plans.
