    { 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.


Mission Trips

My life has been changed in a way that influences so much of how I live here at home – thankfulness, giving, believing, loving, and an awareness of the breadth and diversity of God’s creation.    

       - Madeline Schroth, parishioner

Have you ever filled a water bucket from a hand-pumped well? Built a church pew from scratch? Stuck your hands in thick gray mud and molded a brick? Stirred cornmeal mush over an open fire? Clapped your hands and danced in worship? 

If these images intrigue you or scare you – or both – consider participating in a group mission trip. On a practical level, group mission trips combine service projects, worship, and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. On a spiritual level they take us out of our comfort zone and provide insight and growth in our individual journeys of faith. Explore the world and the world of faith as a family; build communities with others from St. James’.

St. James’ Partners in Mission trips are immersion experiences in partner dioceses within the Anglican Communion. They’re open to youth age 14+ (accompanied by a parent) and to adults.
