    { We're Glad You've Visited }

    We welcome you and invite you to enter into a deeper exploration of a community that shares the love of Jesus Christ with each other, our city, and the world. It takes more than a few words to describe a parish, but there are two things we can tell you right away: we are committed to Jesus Christ and from that commitment flows our care for one another and our ministries. In every ministry and program, we at St. James' Church on Madison Avenue at 71st Street invite you to enter more deeply into the life we share in Christ. We hope you will join us.

    The Rev. Brenda G. Husson, Rector

    { First Time Families }

    We've found that St. James' mix of rich Anglican tradition and innovative, fun family worship and programming is just the right recipe for helping kids know God's love.

    When you come to church at St. James', you can expect to find...

    SPACE TO PRAY. Our services include hymns, prayers, and time for silence, as well as Communion and sermons that connect our Scriptures to our lives.

    SPACE TO BE YOURSELF. Worshipers at St. James' come from many different places, backgrounds, and perspectives.

    SPACE TO MAKE CONNECTIONS. Whether it's your first time or your thousandth, there's always an opportunity to get better connected with God and one another. Join us at coffee hour or stop by the Welcome station on your way out. We look forward to meeting you.

Come Sunday

Gilbert Pelissier, graduate student and co-chair of the St. Jamesians Committee, offers up a little jazz to help us reflect on the Lenten season. What's on your mind (or iPod) this Lent? Contact Chris Dickler to share your thoughts on the season. 


This song is very appropriate to the season of Lent. When you listen, please pay attention to the words by sung by Mahalia Jackson and how they relate to your journey during this season. 


Oh dear Lord I've loved 
God almighty, God up above 
Please, look down and see my people through.

I believe the sun and moon 
Will shine up in the sky 
When the day is grey 
It's just clouds passing by.

He'll give peace and comfort 
To every troubled mind 
Come sunday, oh come sunday 
That's the day.

Often we feel weary 
But he knows our every care 
Go to him in secret 
He will hear every prayer.

The leaves in the valley 
They neither toll nor spin 
And flowers bloom in spring 
And birds sing.

Up from dawn till sunset 
Man work hard all the day 
Come sunday, oh come sunday 
That's the day.
