Mission Statement


We are a forward looking, multi-cultural and inclusive faith community, proclaiming and doing Christ's work of love and justice in the greater New London area and the world.

Upcoming Events and Activities
Our fall Christian Formation program begins each Wednesday with a worship service in Hallam Chapel at 5 PM, follwed by a potluck supper at 6 PM in the parlor and a book discussion starting at 6:30 PM.  We will study The Book of Joy:  Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by the Dalai Lama and the Rt. Rev. Desmond Tutu.  This book has been a #1 bestseller on the NY Times book list.
Our Fall Parish Clean Up Day is on Saturday, September 21, from 9 AM to noon.  Coffee and goodies will be available in the morning and a lunch will be provided when the work is done.  A sign up sheet is in the parish hall.  We need everyone's support to make our Church and grounds attractive and welcoming!
The Anglican Singers will offer their opening service of the season on Sunday, September 22 at 4 PM (time change) at St. Mary Star of the Sea Church at 10 Huntington Street, three blocks south of St. James.  It will be a joy for us to share this wonderful service with the communicants of St. Mary's.
The Writer's Group will be meeting on Monday, September 23 at 6:30 PM in the Parlor.
The St. James Book Group will meet in the church parlor on Thursday, September 26 at 6:00 PM. Parishioner Robert "Kim" Bingham will discuss his book Courageous Dissent, which is based on the life of his father, Hiram Bingham IV.  Hiram Bingham helped to organize an "underground railroad" which  smuggled Jews and non-Jews out of Europe before the start of WWII.  For more information please contact Lori Sarkett at (860) 287-5500, or lorisarketthne@gmail.com.
Copies of the book are available for $20.00, and a light dinner will be provided on this evening.
Blessing of the Animals will be on Sunday, October 6 at 2 PM in the church courtyard. Bring your real or stuffed animals to receive a blessing from Fr. Ranjit.
