The Parish Church of St James the Great Audlem South Cheshire in the Diocese of Chester
St James is a community of people who are encouraging one another in our growing in our experience and understanding of God’s love. We have much to learn and don’t have all the answers but we know that in the teaching and life of Jesus Christ we find something, and someone who has the potential to change us.
Like all Christians, and all people, we make mistakes but we believe in God’s forgiveness and a fresh start. If you would like to join us in exploring God and his love and grace then you will be made welcome – whoever you are.
We are part of the Joint Benefice of St Jame’s Audlem, St John’s Doddington and St Chad’s Wybunbury and work closely with The Methodist and Baptist Churches in the Village of Audlem.
St James Church takes its duties and obligations to protect everyone extremely seriously. Find out more by selecting the Safeguarding heading above.

Dear member of our congregation,
You all know that Helen is leaving the parish to take up a new post in Hucknall, Nottingham. She first announced this at the 'virtual service' on Sunday and then via audlemonline on Monday. At St James we truly appreciative all that Helen has done and achieved over the past fifteen years with us. Her genuine love and care for everyone, from oldest to youngest, has been at the forefront of her ministry. Her inspiring and often innovative approach to worship, with God's love at the centre, has helped many in all age groups on their journey of faith.
We plan to thank Helen for her care, friendship, leadership and all she that has done, by way of a farewell 'thank you' gift. Therefore we are inviting you to contribute if you so wish. Please place your gift (Cheque or Cash) in a sealed envelope and hand deliver or post to Peter Ellis, Church Warden, 15, Windmill Drive, Audlem, CW3 0BE. Please make cheques payable to 'Audlem PCC'. We would be grateful if donations could be received by: Sunday 7th June.
Peter Ellis, and Frank Shenton, Church Wardens.
