    About the host organisation

    Hosted by: St. Peter's Church in the Parish of the Good Shephard
    Organisation Profile:

    St James Church is situated in the northern part of Ashton town centre, Cowhill Lane, Ashton. We believe we are on an outward looking church, ready to reach out to all members within the local neighbourhoods. We promote the love of God within the community of our worshipping congregation and strive to extend this love to all user of the church and community room. We serve a range of ethnic groups and have recently set up links with Nepali speaking congregation.

    St James Church promotes excellent links with its two church schools. To strengthen these links, once a month we have a 'Café Chruch' when a class from either school attends and links up with church members.
