St James’ is the Church of England Parish Church serving Shilbottle, Hazon, Hampeth and Newton-on-the-Moor. For nearly a thousand years, worship has been offered to God here, local people baptised, married and buried and followers of Jesus in every age have been strengthened by scripture and sacrament.
Our congregation today is as diverse in age and background as it has ever been. We are a welcoming and loving group of people – aware of our own shortcomings, wanting to reach out to others to share the good news of God’s love and ready to serve others in whatever ways we can.
We are part of a wider network of churches in the Diocese of Newcastle and the Church of England. You will find links to their websites here.
We hope that our website will give you a flavour of our shared sense of purpose as a Christian community and inform you about our worship and other activities. We invite you to explore these pages and use the link to contact us with any further enquiries.
Generous, Engaged and Open For All
