St. James’s is an urban faith community of about 1,250 families located in Richmond’s historic Fan District and housed in a small complex of buildings near Virginia Commonwealth University. Established in 1835, the congregation is diverse in many ways and is particularly blessed to have many families with children supported by excellent Youth and children’s educational programs. Abundant community life found in work, play and worship together is an imperative at St. James’s. The church family is committed to welcoming seekers and connecting members to meaningful, authentic relationships as well as meaningful and fulfilling personal ministry. Our communications audiences comprise both those in the St. James’s family as well as those we invite to discover the joys of that community. Notably, the faith community’s motto is taken from the biblical letter of St. James:”…be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only…” We are a community of action–oriented doers serving our neighbors both locally and beyond Richmond.
