String Sundays

Pacific Strings at St. James Festival of Lessons and Carols 2015Welcome to St. James! St. James is an Anglican Church located in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose. We are part of the Anglican Church in North America. We have two Sunday Services. 9am and 10:30am. Our 9am Service has traditional music. Our 10:30 Service has contemporary music. Both services are child friendly and have a staffed Nursery and Sunday School available.

String Sundays are Sundays when St. James seeks to worship God in a very beautiful way. We have a Sting Quartet instead of organ music for our 9am service. Our Church building was designed by William Binder who also was the architect for le Petit Trianon in Downtown San Jose.  le Petit Trianon is the premiere chamber music hall in San Jose. Like le Petit Trianon, our church building has amazing acoustics that are fantastic for stringed instruments.

Pacific Strings, a local professional string quartet first joined us in December of 2015 for our Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols. A photo of that event is to the right. We are very pleased to invite them back to St. James for three Sunday Mornings this fall and also for our Festival of Lessons and Carols on December 11. The three Sunday mornings are

Please come and join us as we welcome Pacific Strings back to St. James and seek to worship God in a very beautiful way.  Refreshments follow the service at 10am.
