East Crompton St James
To follow Jesus in every way
We aim to have Jesus at the heart of everything we do, not only in church when we worship, but in our daily lives, work places, schools and homes.
We Believe that our church, working alongside all the Christians of our community, is called to be a doorway to new life in Jesus Christ.
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN THAT CALLING: when anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation...
In our Parish we have 2 worship centres: the Parish Church (pictured above) St James Street, Shaw, OLDHAM OL2 7TD established in 1847; and St Saviour's, Crompton Fold, Buckstones Road, Shaw, OLDHAM (below), established 1908.
St Saviour's is a Mission Church, and is fully part of the Parish of East Crompton St James.
