    { 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.

Q&A with Eva


Eva Suarez is the 2017-2019 Rockwell Fellow at St. James'. She is passionate about pastoral care and outreach ministry, and the different ways communities can build relationships and follow Jesus. As a newly ordained priest, Eva is excited to learn more about how a big church like St. James' runs and grows. Eva is originally from Washington, D.C. After studying religion at Columbia University, she received her M.Div from Union Theological Seminary and her M.S.W from the Silberman School of Social Work at CUNY Hunter. When not at work, you can probably find Eva exploring the city, catching some live music, or just making a mess in the kitchen.


Tell us what you have been doing most recently.

Before work started, I was taking a little staycation in the city—lazing on Brighton Beach, wandering the Met, watching the neighborhood stroll by on a friend’s stoop—and decompressing from finishing school. Now I’m getting lost between Kinsolving and Sunderland…did I get those names right?

You've spent a week at St. James'? What do you notice so far? What most excites you about coming to serve in this community?

You people really love your church. It’s infectious. It’s been exciting to hear about the ministries, programs and events you’re a part of or look forward to or think we ought to bring back. I’m really looking forward to seeing them in action and being a part of the work that you do. 

Where are you from?  

Born in Chicago, raised in Washington, D.C., and a New York City resident for the past 8 years. I guess I like cities! 

Do you have a favorite Bible verse or story that shapes how you think of ministry?

I feel like it depends on the day. Recently I’ve been re-reading some Paul, thinking about what it meant to try and encourage the growth and address the growing pains of all these different communities, from a distance and in writing. This passage from First Corinthians is a great one—“There are varieties of gifts, but the same spirit. There are varieties of service, but the same Lord. There are varieties of activity, but in all of them and everyone the same God is active. In each of us the Spirit is seen to be at work for some useful purpose…we were all given that one Spirit to drink" (12:4-7, 13). We really all have something to offer, and I think one of the great gifts of being a priest is seeing that variety of gifts and calls, learning from all these different people and helping others discover where they feel that spark of the Holy Spirit in their own lives.
