St. James Church Paris Service Times

At all St. James services, you can expect a friendly welcome, a thoughtful message, and wonderful fellowship.

On the first, third, and fourth Sundays of the month, we enjoy a community lunch following the 10:30 service, to which all are invited.

On the second Sunday of the month, we enjoy a community breakfast following the 8:30 service.

The priest and altar servers are the only ones who have to follow a dress code.

8:30 Communion

What to expect: a classic Anglican service following the historic Book of Common Prayer. This is a contemplative service with lots of silence and no music. Traditional English and the King James Version of the Bible are used. The service is 50-60 minutes in length.

10:30 Eucharist

What to expect – a modern Anglican service following the Book of Alternative Services. This is a very musical service of uplifting worship lead by one of our Praise Bands accompanied by our Choir. We offer a vibrant Children’s program, a 15-minute message, and the opportunity to receive the Blessed Sacrament. The service is 70-80 minutes in length.

We also have a Wednesday night service of Evening Prayer beginning at 7:15 (followed by the St James Academy series of lectures and discussions beginning at 7:30). This runs weekly from September to May.

We also offer Morning prayer on Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 – 8:45.

And on each 2nd Friday of the month
1030 Seniors Service (followed by lunch)
