    { 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.



Worship Leadership

When we worship actively, we come to know God's love and feel God's blessings in our daily lives. St. James' encourages all children and youth to deepen their understanding of our common worship by participating in the 9:10 a.m. Sunday service.

  • Kids 4+ are encouraged to sing in the choirs

  • Children 3rd grade and above are invited to serve as acolytes.  If you would like to acolyte this year, come to one of two training sessions: Saturdays, Sept. 10 or 17, 10:00-11:30 a. m. Those trained on Sept. 10 will acolyte on Sept. 11; those trained on Sept. 17 will acolyte on Sept. 18. Can't come to either? Contact Vicki

  • 4th graders lead the Decalogue during Advent and Lent

  • Kids 5th grade and above are invited to read the Lesson
