St. James is the local Church of England parish church serving the area of the village of Westhead near Ormskirk, Lancashire. 

St. James' is a friendly, welcoming, church. We have great links with the primary school in the village and we strive to be a key part of our local community. 

Our regular Sunday services are at 9:00am and 10:30am. 

The 9:00am Holy Communion service does not include sung worship. 

The 10:30am service includes sung worship and on different Sundays varies in formality (robed Holy Communion through to informal Praise and Worship), with facilities for small children (creche) and for older children.  Refreshments are available after the service.  On the fourth Sunday of the month the 10:30 service breaks out and goes to the village hall for 'Community Praise', a much more informal event but again followed by refreshments! 

Further details and details of special services can be found at "A Church near You".
