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

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.

Online worship will continue via Facebook Live and Facebook Watch (smart TV app), in addition to the in-person gathering. 

Every Sunday 8am and 10:30am
