to our church
St. James' is an evangelical Anglican church, located in the semi-rural outskirts of Stoke-On-Trent.
With a real heart for the local community, our vision for St. James' is to be a church that impacts the people of our parish with the love of Jesus Christ.
We are part of a United Benefice that comprises three local churches (St Martin's in Talke,
St John's in Alsagers Bank and ourselves here in Audley)
under the oversight of our Vicar, Simon Tomkins.
to the family
At St. James' we see the church as a family of God's people. Whether young or old, married or single, our ministry aims to build a sense of belonging to this family, believing that everyone has a part to play in the life of the church. We are always delighted to welcome anyone who may wish to visit our church. We also host a range of activities throughout the week which aim to cater for all ages and needs.
