Our Mission Statement

As a community of Anglican Christians set in the heart of Montreal, we are called to nurture our common faith and life through prayer, sacraments, Christian teaching and fellowship, and to relate to the wider community by sharing faith and responding to needs.

St. James the Apostle is much more than its church building. To fully experience St. James the Apostle, we invite you to visit us during a worship service, a faith-building educational activity or a social event.

Yet, this built heritage is an important gift that tells our story. It reflects the life and evolution of our church since 1864. It is also an important space for outreach ministry. And today, because of its location close to Concordia University and in the heart of Montreal’s most commercial centre, and because of the beauty of the building and the gardens, we are called to respond to our mission daily.
