Welcome to the Episcopal Church of St. James!

St. James Church at the heart of Upper Montclair and worshiping in the Episcopal tradition, is an inclusive community focused on faith, family and fellowship.

We seek to:

  •  Nurture spirituality through community and Christian education
  •  Grow and support our diverse membership through fellowship and outreach
  •  Serve the needs of Montclair and beyond through God’s love.  

Collect for the Community   

Gracious God, strengthen in us two values that we hold central as a Christian Community.  These values are inspired by Jesus' two great commandments.  First, we love God or something greater than ourselves with all our hearts and mind, and second we commit to loving our neighbor as we love ourselves.  There is no boundary or condition to our love and commitment to God or to our neighbor, no matter who they may be.  All are welcome in this place.  Amen.
