Bishop lifts capacity limits for in-person worship
Effective June 6th, Bishop McLoughlin has approved in-person worship at full capacity, so pre-registeration through Eventbrite is no longer necessary. You may attend any service without signing up, but masks will still be required. The weekly service schedule is as follows: Wednesdays at noon, Saturdays at 5:00 PM, and Sundays at 7:30 AM and 10:00 AM. Weekend services (but not Wednesdays) will continue to be livestreamed via our Facebook page. Facebook Bulletins for the Saturday and Sunday services are available here: Sat. & Sun. 7:30 bulletin and Sun. 10:00 bulletin. As an aid to online worshippers, links to the assigned hymns and liturgy can be viewed here: Hymns and Liturgy.
We welcome worshipers not just from our congregation, but from all over the country. We welcome worshipers who are not members of the Episcopal Chruch, those who belong to other churches, and those who may not want to join a church, but want to be with us on Sundays. If you would like one of our clergy or staff to be in touch with you, or wish to be added to our parish email list, please click here. Contact form
And now, we bid you welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in St. James! Our parishioners form a vibrant community of 700 plus members who come here to be refreshed through worship and Christian education, so they can continue to live the mission to which they have been called by God. We strive to create a nurturing, caring, and supportive spiritual home where all are loved, welcomed, and served. We eagerly anticipate getting to know you and welcoming you into our family. Our life together as members of St. James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville is guided by our mission and vision statements:
St. James Mission Statement: Every member is vital as we follow the example of Jesus’ servant ministry to welcome all, love all, serve all, through Christ.
St. James Vision Statement: St. James will be a community of passionate servants who live out God's ever-present love through inspiring worship, faith-forming discipleship, and active ministries that make an impact in the church, the community, and the world.
We strive to adhere to these statements in all of our ministries and our life together, whether they are in helping the community around us or in supporting our fellow parishioners.
