A Warm Welcome to St. James Church

Our mission is to:

Invite you to the table
Illuminate our spiritual journey
Share Christ's love with the world

We are a vibrant community seeking how best to love and serve God in our lives. 

We are a multitude of ages, backgrounds, and opinions, yet we gather to worship and explore our spiritual journey together. 

We invite you to join us around both the communion table and the fellowship table so we can share together our deepest questions and learn from one another. Whether you are looking for a church home, exploring what it means to be church, or simply visiting, we welcome you and look forward to knowing you better.

Walk with us in God's love

Inclement weather policy:

Our policy is to always have services at St. James on a Sunday. No matter how bad things get, we will be here and praying. This goes for bad weather, power outages, or any other thing that happens.

That does not necessarily mean that you should join us. We expect you to use your discretion, to be safe, and to make decisions about how to handle inclement weather. If it is not safe to come to church, don’t come. Pray at home and know that you are part of the cloud of witnesses even if you aren’t in the building. We always miss members when they aren’t present, but the first priority is for you to be safe.

The Preschool and Church offices are closed when Birmingham Public Schools close due to weather.

Weekday activities may be canceled at the ministry/group leader’s discretion.
