    { 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.



In baptism, Christ calls each of us---with all our particularity, and individuality, and different gifts---into community, into the Church, into the Body of Christ. Young and old, rich and poor, from near or far, gay or straight,  raised in the church and new to the church, firm in faith and just asking questions about faith, God declares that we are all connected to one another. That we are meant to take care of one another. That we need one another's gifts and insights to know God truly, and to love and serve Christ's world faithfully.

Parishioners at St. James' connect in several ways:

  • Consider joining one of our Small Groups, groups of 6-10 parishioners that meet regularly for Bible study, prayer and fellowship.

  • Participate in Parish-Wide Events that build community across age groups and among parishioners who may attend different Sunday services.

  • Our Pastoral Ministries maintain spiritual communities where members reach out to others in Christ's love.

  • Youth Ministries help teenagers in our parish and their friends grow in their faith while serving others and having a great time together!

  • The St. Jamesians is a community of young adults in their 20s and 30s -- singles, couples, professionals, and students -- who gather in fellowship, learning, and mission.
