    { 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.


The Jesus Project

Who is Jesus for us?

Who is Jesus for us -- as a community, and for each of us in our individual faith? Over the course of the 2014 - 2015 academic year, we will address this fundamental question by using a variety of approaches to the figure of Jesus. The four gospels will provide our foundation, and that Biblical approach will be augmented by liturgical, historical, mystical, artistic, musical, and literary approaches. 

The Jesus Project seeks to make our Biblical and theological knowledge useful in the articulation of our faith in Jesus Christ. How have the faithful before us sought to know Jesus? How can their explorations help us in ours? 

The Project is composed of the following elements:

  • Sunday Forums: A variety of guests and our own clergy will speak at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday. 

  • Small Group curricula: In small groups, parishioners will explore topics such as mystical writings about Jesus, women and Jesus, "the gospel according to me" (articulating our individual narratives of Jesus), and others

  • The Four Gospels: A Spiritual Discipline: A weekly program of reading the gospels will enrich and complement our Forum readings. This schedule is not related to the forum reading schedule.
