Church of England Diocese of Blackburn White Chapel

St James

Welcome to St James.  Please note that we will continue to follow COVID regulations as they change. We aim to keep people safe and encourage church users to use hand-sanitisers, masks and safe-distancing as appropriate in concern for others as well as ourselves. The church is open daily for Private Prayer from 9.00am to 4.00pm (approx).

Weekly updates of what is happening in the Fellside Team churches can be found on the Team website:

"The parish of Whitechapel: St James is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Blackburn’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."
