St. James Welcomes you!


We are an Episcopal Church in downtown Woonsocket, right next to the Court St. Bridge on Hamlet Ave. We are focused on worshiping God in a joyful manner, teaching children and adults about Jesus and God, helping each other, and reaching out to the community through our ministries.


At St. James Church we strive...

  • To model Christ-like behavior of acceptance, forgiveness, and love
  • To reach families in our community for Christ
  • To assimilate them into the life of the Church
  • To nurture them toward Christian maturity

VISION STATEMENT
To love and serve God and each other in our church and community!

MISSION STATEMENT
That every member would know Christ and Make Christ Known!

You are welcome to join us for services:

We are so glad to be able to worship in person. Out of love and respect for vulnerable members of our communities, please wear a mask if you are unvaccinated; please check signs upon entering the building.
