YOU ARE WELCOME HERE.

WE ARE PART OF SOMETHING BIG...

St. James’ Church in the City of New York: Thousands of parishioners actively sharing the love of Jesus Christ with each other, our city, and the world.

The Episcopal Diocese of New York: More than 60,000 Christians in more than 200 congregations in 10 counties, including three NYC boroughs.

The Episcopal Church: More than 2 million Episcopalians in 112 dioceses in the United States and abroad.

The Anglican Communion: A global fellowship of 85 million, worshiping and serving God in Christ in more than 150 countries.

BUT YOU'LL ALWAYS FEEL AT HOME.

Walking through our neighborhood today, it’s hard to believe that St. James’ was founded as a quiet summer parish in 1810, when the Upper East Side was countryside. Our city has grown up around us, and we’re proud of the role we’ve always played in supporting our neighbors. What sets us apart now is what defined us in the beginning: We know each other. Whether you find your way in because you are moved to worship with us and explore your faith, or to serve your community, or to make sure your family knows and grows in the love of Christ, one thing is true for us all: When you’re at St. James’, you’re home.
