Gawsworth Churches

church-iiiSt James the Great

In 1430, an increasing population meant that the previous Norman Chapel was too small. This saw a new church being built by the lord of the manor. In 1470 a new chancel was built around the old church and the tower built. It is one of the three Grade I listed buildings in Gawsworth. Visitors to the church are welcome and the churches website has a fantastically detailed guide of what you can see.

The church holds services based on the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Services are held at 8am, 10am and 6:30pm every Sunday with Holy Communion at 10am every Wednesday too. The church welcome you to join them for tea/coffee in the Church Hall after each 10am service.

The Friends of St James’ Church work t maintain the church and churchyard. The Rector is the Rt Rev William A Pwaisiho OBE.
