St. James’ Episcopal Church of Danbury is a 257-year-old parish that is welcoming and affirming. We joyously celebrate our life together, gathering to worship God in our sanctuary and chapel, and carrying our love and spiritual worship to homebound parishioners. Sermons and music play an important role in nourishing our spiritual health and sustaining the faith journey of each member. Through Sunday services and bible study there are opportunities to deepen your knowledge and understanding of God’s word.
The community of St. James’ is comprised of multiple generations, with primarily a mature population. The congregation strives to maintain our many characteristics for being a mission-based church both locally and globally, welcoming, family oriented, polite and respectful. There is a history of embracing diversity of opinion while worshiping and celebrating our common life together.
Parishioners and visitors socialize and share their Christian faith with each other during the Sunday coffee hour. There are several other opportunities for fellowship throughout the year like the Annual Parish Picnic, Christmas Tea for senior parishioners, Shrove Tuesday pancake supper, movie nights, the Mother’s Day breakfast, murder mystery dinner, Friday’s with Friends, as well as several other events planned by various committees. St. James’ has a popular book club, a prayer shawl ministry, an active ECW (Episcopal Church Women) group. We are a member parish of ARC, the Association of Religious Communities in Danbury. Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. 1Thessalonians 5:11
