St James’ Church is the highest church above sea level in the country and has an imposing view over its parish of Haslingden, Rising Bridge and Grane. There has been a church on the site since the mid 13th century and throughout that time St James’ has played a key part in the life of the local community.
Today our worship is open to all and you will find a genuinely warm welcome here. Our services centre on the Eucharist but we also offer other styles and form of worship including quiet and reflective and services accompanied by our very fine Willis pipe organ. There’s a place, and something, for everyone at St James.
Worship is at the heart of all we do but we enjoy social and fundraising events as well as our work in our two church schools, in the town centre and as a support for anyone who needs it. We love to feed people and offer a lunch club every other Tuesday as well as other events during the year.
St James is rich with history and we welcome those researching the story of their family and other investigations.
