Welcome to St James’ Church located in the Parish of Brindle in Lancashire which is within the Diocese of Blackburn - the Church of England in Lancashire.

Brindle is one of the oldest parishes in Lancashire. The name of Brindle derives from ‘Burnhul’ meaning the hill by the stream.

A church has existed on the current site of Brindle St. James’ since 1190 and one of the fonts dates from this time. The original church, built over 800 years ago was dedicated to St. Helen. The sacred St. Helen’s Well was located south of the village where the M61 now runs.

“On behalf of the Church family I warmly invite you to browse this site and learn more about us.

The Church is an important part of the community and we continue to worship in the recently restored Church building. Here, we worship the God who loved us so much He died for us and rose victorious.

We are blessed with a growing team of volunteers who give so much of their time to support the on-going mission of the Church.

We strive to be an inclusive Church and you will always receive a warm welcome at any of our services and events.

If you wish to know more about us, please get in touch and we will do our very best to provide the answer. The list of contacts appears in the ‘St James’ Faces’ page.

The ‘Contact Us’ page also provides a contact form to enable you to contact us directly.”

A message from The Rector - Rev. David Ward.
