We are a traditional Anglican Church, adhering to the traditions, faith and practice of the early Church, following the exhortation of St. Jude who "found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints." Located in Tumwater, Washington, we are a warm, caring and friendly family of Christians. Our mission is to reach out to the community, teaching the love of Christ and following His command to "make disciples of all nations".
St. James Anglican Church has been worshiping with a traditional prayer book that goes back 400 years. The Book of Common Prayer is arguably the most important contribution to the Christian faith, in particular the 39 articles of religion, which give a concise doctrinal position of the traditional Anglican Church.
There are pockets of Anglican churches around the world that adhere to the ancient traditions of the early church, and the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, which hold fast to those traditions. St. James Anglican Church will remain one of those small pockets of truth and love in the world, and in our community.
We are members of the Christian Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Seattle.
