Welcome to our our website. We are glad you are here! Due to COVID-19 in Vermont, and with a desire to protect all people in the name of Jesus' love, we are not currently holding public worship or activities on-site at St. James' buildings. Still, the church of Jesus Christ is really the people and so we continue our vital ministries, including worship, education, and meetings online. We invite you to join us and become part of our community, finding spiritual sustenance through our common life together, especially during these challenging times. God is with us. As St. Paul wrote, "...neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

Physical location: St. James is located at 4 St. James Place, close to the heart of the Village of Essex Junction, which is within 20 minutes’ drive of downtown Burlington. The area is largely settled, with urban, suburban, and semi-rural settings within a 7-mile radius of the church. Essex Junction is a village embedded in the Town of Essex, a large, vibrant, community-minded town with a calendar full of local-business and public community-building events.
The church’s setting: The church building is nestled in a small lane leading off one of the major arteries in Essex Junction. The 1950s A-frame church and its subsequent additions are separated by woods from the nearby rectory, a ranch-style home. The region’s fairgrounds are adjacent to the church property.
