St James aspires to be a welcoming, diverse and community-focused Episcopal Church that believes in a faith that changes our lives and our society.
St James Church is part of the Scottish Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. It welcomes people of all backgrounds, whether they have been part of a church or not. Its members have had a variety of faith journeys and such diversity of faith is treasured and valued.
The congregation of St James numbers around 80 active members who are involved in contributing to services and the life and outreach of the church. Whilst most of the congregation are older adults there are a small number of families including children and teenagers.
Built in 1980, the church building is unique in its modern architecture; it integrates furnishings from various churches closed during the mid-to-late twentieth century redevelopment of north Glasgow. One visitor described St James as the best example of a modern church building he had seen. Together with a sense of peace it has a warm and welcoming feel to it, and this is also true of its people.
