Welcome to St. James'
Many newcomers first experience the Parish through this website. Here you can glimpse the range and depth of ministries which we offer to the glory of God and in the service of Christ. Indeed, there are many and varied opportunities for service and sacrifice through St. James'. Situated in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, we are both a neighbourhood and a destination Church. We seek to worship God in the beauty of holiness. We seek to serve by living a sacramental life rooted in the Anglo-Catholic tradition.
St. James' is not for the faint-hearted. MORE
