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 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.
