St James, Welland is a friendly and welcoming church and active in reaching out to the local community.
<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, our building and services are closed at the moment, however you can join our regular online services every day, and on Sunday at www.hopechurchfamily.org/virtual</span>
<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Although we are a parish in our own right, we share quite a lot of activities with St Gabriel's Church, Hanley Swan, and are also part of the wider grouping of Church of England parishes, </span>the Hope Church Family<span style="font-size: 1rem;">. This means we do our best to support each other's events and share activities where it makes sense. This is particularly the case with what we do for young people. To find out more, please visit our Youth and Kids page..</span>
