    { 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.


Small Groups

In any given week, there are small groups of people from our church that meet together, both at church and in their homes all around the city. They are places where we get to know one another better around the things that matter most: Bible study, conversation about our life of faith, checking in about what’s really going on, and prayer. They are places where we can be ourselves and know that there is a group of people who really know—and are praying for—us. 


Tuesday Morning Small Group

This group began as a group of young mothers exploring questions of faith and parenting, and has grown to be a place where parishioners can support one another in faith, learn new prayer practices, explore the Bible, and ask important questions about how to live our Christian faith in our contemporary society. 

This Group meets weekly on Tuesday mornings in the Parish House, 8:45-10:00 a.m.

Men of St. James'

Men of all ages are invited to join a new weekly small group at St. James' called Men at St. James.  The mission of the group is to help men discern how God is working in their lives, and how Christ’s teachings can be applied to our professional and personal lives as men, husbands, and fathers in our contemporary society. The group will always include prayer and reflections on Scripture, but it is not a Bible study group per se: the ongoing objective of the group is to develop a sense of community where men can feel comfortable sharing in an atmosphere of complete confidentiality. This fall, the group will begin with readings, reflection, and discussion of the Gospel of John, exploring how that Gospel offers insights for the way we live our lives now.

Led by Matthew Leaycraft and Jim Olson, the Group will meet weekly on Friday mornings in the Parish House, 7:00-8:00 a.m., beginning October 7, 2016.



If you want to get better connected at St. James' and develop deep friendships with other Christians, consider joining one of our Small Groups. Contact Ryan Fleenor to learn more.
