A Worshipping Family Proclaiming Christ through Love and Service to all People



We welcome you to St. James’ website. St. James is a warm and welcoming congregation in the middle of Elmira.

Worship is at the heart of our life together and so we meet each Sunday morning. We begin with Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. A time of Fellowship with Coffee and tea is available at 9:45 and Worship begins at 10:15 in the Sanctuary. Holy Communion offered on the first Sunday of the month during the summer. Whether you are a seeker or a visitor to the area, here you will be invited to explore your faith, ask questions and encounter the Divine Mystery that is the source of all life and creation.

Parking is available in the municipal lot located north of Wyatt St. West. Two accessible parking spots are available near the Wyatt St. entrance to the Church and there are others in front of the Kindred Spirit Credit Union in the municipal lot. An accessible washroom and a lift to the second floor sanctuary (and concert space) are also available from the Wyatt St. entrance.

St. James Celebration of Music presents:

A Circle of Learning and Song to support the Music for the Spirit program for Six Nations youth will take place at St. James on Sunday, January 28th, at 2:30 pm. We will join voices with the Inshallah choir of over 100 in songs of praise from around the world and Mino Ode Kwewak N’Gamowak (the Good Hearted Women) will provide indigenous singing and drumming. Both groups are offering these gifts at no charge, so admission is free and a Free Will Offering will be encouraged. We will learn about the Music for the Spirit program and audience members will be invited to meet the artists and the program leaders at a reception following the event.
