ST JAMES PARISH CHURCH
History of the Church
A warm welcome awaits everyone at our Church which can be found at the south end of the village, just a few yards down the Dorsington Road and is part of the Benefice of Welford, Quinton and Weston-on Avon.
St James The Great dates back to the 13th Century and still remains the most prominent building in the village of Long Marston which today has a population exceeding 400 . whilst we are proud of our heritage and are careful to preserve what is good from the past we are a forward thinking community and are on the road to making our vision for the future a reality, this has involved changes to the chancel seating, the creation of a kitchen area in the vestry, making a children welcome area and ensuring that the church is open every day for people to visit and pray .
We have 3 services a month providing a mixture of Holy Communion and Family Worship with coffee served in the church for all after the family services, the hymns and music is integral to our worship and this is provided by organists and from an IPOD. The special services at Christmas, Easter and Harvest are well supported by the village as whole with children encouraged to take part.
