Welcome to St James the Great, serving the communities of

Hanslope, Long Street, Tathall End, Higham Cross and Pindon End

Our church is at the heart of the village of Hanslope, offering a place for worship and prayer, serving our local community, providing pastoral care and holding community events for all ages.

Your parish church, St James the Great, is here to help you become the person God has made you to be – a person fully alive! We want you to experience health and wholeness with God and those around you. We offer a wide range of groups, activities, learning and worship opportunities, as well as social events, the details of which you can find here or on our Facebook page.

Whether you’re new to church or interested in getting stuck in after time away, there is a place for you at St James. Your parish priests are here to guide you through any important life events, such as christenings, weddings, and funerals.

Our Parish Priest is Fr Gary Ecclestone SSC, who is supported by our assistant Parish Priest Fr Adam Burnham SSC and retired colleague Fr Robin Carter SSC. The parish is cared for by the Bishop of Oswestry. We also have our sister church, Ss Simon and Jude in Castlethorpe which you can find out more about here.

Whether you’re local to the area or just visiting, we look forward to welcoming you to St James.
