    { 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.

Without St. James'...


Parishioner Maggie McCarthy has a lot of reasons to be thankful for St. James'...and St. James' has a lot of reasons to give God thanks for Maggie McCarthy! Read on...

I give to St. James’ because I know I am giving to a place that is filled with joy, happiness, faith and friends. St. James’ is a place for family and love -- a place where we all come together every Sunday to worship God and spread kindness and friendship. 

Whenever I step into St. James’, I instantly feel joy and safety, support and happiness. 

Without St. James’, I would never have found my love for music and singing, which is now one of my favorite things to do. I have been in the choir for six years now and I participated every week in We Love to Sing before joining the choir.

Without St. James’,  my closest friend and I would never see each other. 

Without St. James’, I would have never discovered the true meaning of generosity and giving back, like we do during Family Fridays. 

Without St. James’, my faith in God would not be as important to me as it most definitely is now. 

Without St. James', I would not know all of you, amazing people. 

Without St. James’, we would not all sit in church each Sunday sharing love, kindness, friendship, and faith together. 

You may be surprised, but I actually pledge too! A lot of young people here do. A portion of my money I make babysitting and tutoring, I pledge to St. James’. This year I even ended up giving more than I pledged! I support St. James’ because of all of the ways that St. James’ and God support me. 

So this consecration Sunday open you hearts and give to St. James’, the place where we all can feel safe, happy, and spread our love and faith together.
