Church of England Diocese of Birmingham Shirley

St James the Great, Shirley, Solihull

St James the Great, Shirley works alongside Christians from a number of traditions in Shirley to witness to Christ and to make him known.  Our key relationship in this work of mission is with St John's and Christ the King, the two other Church of England churches in Shirley that together make Shirley Parish the inclusive, welcoming and growing parish that it is.
