A few things you should know to make your visit to St. James’s as easy and as comfortable as possible
- Even though we’re an urban church, we have plenty of parking right across the street in our free four-story garage.
- Our in-person services are held at 9 am and 11:15 am. The 9:15 service is tailored more to families, although everyone is invited. (During COVID, registration is required for in-person services. Go to the calendar for the registration link.)
- If you attend the 9 am service, there’s a Children’s Chapel during the sermon that is led by a rector, our choirmaster, and the head of our Children’s Program. For the rest of the service, children are in the main sanctuary with their families.
- There’s an active adult learning and children’s formation program that goes on between the services. More information here.
- You can also attend our online services at 8 am and 10:30 am. Same liturgy, same sermon, same music and prayers. But all on your computer or phone screen. Go to doers.org/live, Facebook (St. James’s Episcopal Church, Richmond) or YouTube.
- Many people here like to dress up for church, but we encourage you to wear what’s comfortable for you. Some of us wear suits and dresses, others wear jeans.
- Sit where you like. There are no assigned seats.
- As for communion, if you receive communion in your home parish, you’re welcome to receive it at St James’s too.
- For directions to the church, go here.
