    { 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.

Planned Giving

Helping St. James’ honor the past · sustain the present · nurture the future

Dear Friends,

What we do with what we have expresses what we believe. We know that is true in our daily life. Yet we easily forget that disposing of our earthly goods at the end of our life also conveys our deepest commitments. Or can do so. Through planned giving, we help assure the continuing witness and work of the Church and other institutions that have sustained and nourished us during our lifetime.

St. James’ benefits greatly from the gifts of talent, time, and financial support offered by current parishioners. But we, and our mission, also benefit from the gifts of those parishioners who have gone before us. Commitment to the ministries of this parish and a vision of an ongoing witness to God’s love lead many to pledge financial support to the parish and its future through bequests and other planned gifts. Such legacies, large and small, sustain our ministries and can be an occasion for joy.


The Kinsolving Society

What is the Kinsolving Society?

The Kinsolving Society is a legacy society that recognizes and thanks those parishioners who have committed to St. James’ future in their estate plans or through a deferred gift.

How do I become a member?

You become a Kinsolving Society member by including St. James’ Church as a beneficiary in your will or living trust, or by establishing a planned gift for St. James’ benefit, such as a charitable annuity trust or unitrust.

Who was Arthur Kinsolving?

The Rev. Arthur Lee Kinsolving, D.D., served as the twelfth Rector of St. James' Church, from 1947 to 1969. Those who support the continuing ministries of St. James’ through a will or trust provision exemplify Arthur Kinsolving’s qualities of uncommon love and devotion to St. James’ Church. The Kinsolving Society provides an opportunity to recognize these qualities and thank those parishioners who ensure the church’s continuing ministry in this lasting and meaningful way.
