    { 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.

Altar Guild

The Altar Guild offers the ministry of preparing the sanctuary for worship on Sundays and weekdays, holy days, and special occasions such as weddings and funerals. They provide the Bread and Wine necessary for Holy Eucharist, and the flowers that adorn the church. They purchase and care for the altar linens, silver vessels, and clergy vestments used in our services, as well as the altar frontals, needlepoint kneelers and cushions that grace our church.

Christmas and Easter Flowers

Flowers at Christmas and Easter are traditionally given in memory of and in thanksgiving for beloved relatives and friends. Names received at least three weeks before the holiday will be listed in the service leaflet for the major services.
