Welcome to St. James’!


St. James’ is a diverse community of believers and seekers, friends and neighbors, old and young, long-term members and newcomers. Our present and future is based on our own efforts to work together for our neighbors, welcoming and accepting all people. Many of us have come to St. James’ as tourists or nomads and by welcoming St. James’ into our hearts, are now pilgrims, sharing our gifts and talents to make the love of God and Jesus Christ known to any seeking them.  Our 10:30 service is projected onto a screen to assist those who are deaf or hearing impaired.

Our many ministries speak to the varied gifts of our members: children and elders, cooks and gardeners and knitters, caregivers and helpers, listeners and speakers, lifelong students and teachers. We have found that all of us have gifts to share; participating in the life of this parish helps us to discern what those gifts might be, and how to put them to the best use God has intended. You will find us active in every area of the church, from participating in feeding programs to singing in the choir, from preparing the altar to tending our buildings and grounds.

We invite you to join us in whatever degree or capacity you able: we are an inclusive, multi-cultural congregation that welcomes all seekers and people of good will.  

St. James’ is a parish in the Diocese of California, part of the Episcopal Church, USA and a member of the Anglican Communion.
