As symbolized by our “Big Red Doors”, St. James is a welcoming and inclusive church where all can enter, worship and get involved.
For over 35 years, St. James Church has been serving the communities of Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Maricopa and Ahwatukee. We offer both traditional and contemporary worship styles and use the Book of Common Prayer as the foundation for our worship.
Welcome Fr. Sam
We welcome Fr. Sam Leite to St James as our new rector. He joins us on June 1st from St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C.

Current Worship Services
We have opened up our sanctuary for in-person worship at 9:30am each Sunday. Diocesan and CDC guidelines will be observed and we are thrilled to welcome you back. We will continue to stream our Sunday worship services to Facebook and YouTube for those that are unable to attend in-person.
We also have an abundant selection of online service offerings (see Online section below). If interested in learning more about our response to COVID-19, please download the following document for the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona:
