About us

All are most welcome to join us in worship and fellowship.  We are a caring, inviting and giving community in the Body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

We are part of the Anglican Communion and a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark.

"...the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..."   Matthew 20:28

Our Lord said these words to Saint James over 2,000 years ago.  Today, St. James' Episcopal Church in Ridgefield, New Jersey continues this mission as we follow in the footsteps of our patron saint.

Our parish has a long tradition of community service, outreach and ecumenical leadership.  We participate in a Good Friday journey walk, a food bank and other community services.

Established in 1868 the church building was rebuilt after a fire in 1907. We continue in a long tradition of a warm, friendly oriented parish as we worship and share good fellowship together.  Please visit us and join us.

To assist you in contributing to the giving programs at St. James' Episcopal Church we have added an electronic method to make it easy for you to share your treasures for memorials, pledge donations and other donations you may wish to give in God's Glory to St. James' Church.  Click on the Contribute Now! button to send your special donation to St. James' Church.  Thank you for your consideration on sharing your treasure with St. James' Church.
