A place of soul-stirring worship, challenging preaching and fine music. We are a progressive community for all people regardless of age, race, sexual orientation or religion.
HERITAGE, HOSPITALITY AND THE MYSTERY OF GOD
Situated in the heart of Sydney, St James’ Church is now approaching its 200th anniversary. The Parish is an open and inclusive Christian community that seeks to live out the good news of Christ through its many activities of worship, welfare support to the homeless and needy, pastoral care, educational programmes and music ministries. We are a diverse group of people that welcomes all, regardless of age, race, sexual orientation or religion.
Saint James’ Church is the oldest surviving church building in Sydney. It was built in 1824 and has been part of the Christian church scene in Sydney for nearly 185 years. When you visit us you will find that our worship style is a bit different to the predominant style of Anglican worship in the Sydney area. We make use of robes and we use incense in some of our worship.
