    { 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.



What is a Small Group? 

 A Small Group is a welcoming group of parishioners, usually about 8 to 12, who meet regularly for fellowship, study, and prayer. These groups usually meet in people’s homes, though some meet at the Church.

What can I expect when the groups meet?

Our time together is very informal. Their first purpose is to help parishioners get to know each other better around the things that matter most. We hope groups will be places where you feel safe to be yourself, to talk openly and honestly about your faith, and to know there is a group of people who really know you. There will be Bible study, conversation about a particular topic, a chance to check in with one another, and time to pray with and for one another.

When will the groups meet?

Sunday afternoons, weekday mornings, weekday afternoons, weeknights… Different groups meet on different days and at different times. Most of the groups meet weekly, but this varies depending upon the desires and schedules of the individual group. 

How long will each gathering last?

Usually about 90 minutes. The schedule is flexible and the atmosphere is casual.

How big are the groups?

The ideal group size is between 8 and 12.

Can the groups keep meeting after this time?

Absolutely---but it is not required. A group might consider continuing into our next “covenant period” in the fall, though we will ask you to be open to welcoming new members or even consider spinning off and creating another small group.

Will the clergy be leading our groups?

No, the clergy will actually be meeting as a group themselves. Each Small Group will have a parishioner or two servings as a “host” who will help moderate the conversation.

How do I join a small group?

If you’d like to join a Small Group at St. James’, let us know. Contact Ryan Fleenor

Can I create a group with my friends?

Yes! But let us know so we can be in touch.

Will St. James’ place me in a group?

Yes, absolutely, we will do our best to find a group that fits your schedule.
