    { 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.

The Theology Project

Simply put, "theology" is the study of God. But perhaps more usefully, it is the effort to understand our faith and what it has to do with our lives. In other words, we are all theologians.

For Christians, theology is first and foremost an explication of the record of the faith found in the Bible. St. James' studied that record together as a parish over two years in an effort we called The Bible Project. What it has to do with our lives is the question that naturally arises from that study, and what we considered together over the 2013 - 2014 academic year.

 

Why the Nicene Creed?

The Creeds we profess may become rote to us, or else perhaps they remain secretly and frustratingly baffling. But the claims we make today are the product of centuries of faithful and rigorous theological consideration. They provide important and relevant direction for our personal relationships with God as well as for our corporate Christian life. Who's afraid of the Nicene Creed? No one, by the time we finished parsing its language, imagery, and history to uncover the ways it encourages us to explore our faith.
