    { 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.


Sharing Our Stories

This summer, St. James’ is all about stories --- in particular, the stories we tell about God’s presence and power in our lives.

Our 2018 summer reading list includes some of the great spiritual autobiographies of the Christian church, as well as more contemporary writers sharing memoirs and reflections on the life of faith.

We offer them as inspiration to think about how you might tell your own story.

2018 Summer Reading Suggestions


Summer Forums   |  Sundays, after the 10:30am Eucharist

In June and July, we will have Summer Forums after the Coffee Hour following the 10:30am Eucharist. Each week, we will explore one of the great spiritual autobiographies on this list, and ask ourselves how they might inspire our own reflection and storytelling.  

June 3      What is a spiritual autobiography?

June 10    The Apostle Paul

June 17    Augustine of Hippo

June 24    Teresa of Avila

July 1       Dorothy Day

July 8       C.S. Lewis

July 15     Thomas Merton

July 22     The Contemporary Scene


Tell your own story!

Telling your own story can be a powerful and transformative spiritual practice. But it can also be intimidating!  Where do I start? What do I include? How do I talk about these things?

This summer, we will offer two writing workshops to help you do just that. Resources and guides will also be available online and through the parish e-news.

Monday, June 18, 6:30pm
A workshop to learn more about writing your own story.

Monday, July 16, 6:30pm
An evening to share ideas, workshop drafts, and to support one another.
