St James is part of the worldwide Anglican Church which is the fourth largest Christian denomination in the world. The Anglican Church historically has spoken of three ways to hear God - scripture, tradition and reason. Scripture - the Bible - always takes first place with the other two helping us to understand it. That is why at St. James you will always find the Bible at the heart of our worship and teaching.
