Eccleston Lane Ends

At Eccleston Lane Ends we really value our links with St James’ as we believe that our children’s spiritual development is incredibly important for the forming of their character. The children love attending activities such as Experience Christmas and Experience Easter and sharing in these special celebrations with supporters of the Christian faith.

The church also provides us with many opportunities to work with members of the wider community and to promote values such as caring for others and respecting those who are different to ourselves.
