The spire of Saint James Anglican Church stands tall and strong against the postcard backdrop of hills and trees, lighting the way for generations of ships seeking safe harbour in the tranquil waters of Mahone Bay, with the bells chiming the hours of the day for all the town to hear. The congregation of Saint James lives out this ministry of witness to God’s love, as is so beautifully symbolized by the stately built heritage of our church, by seeking to help souls find safe harbour through faith in Jesus Christ, ringing out the truth of God’s Good News through our mission. Foundational to this mission and ministry are the relationships that shape us daily, with God, each other, and the community around us.
We value and invest in old and young, rich and poor, come-by-choice, folks who have been rooted here for generations, visitors, and anyone else in all creation, because we believe we are all God’s children. Whether its our beautiful church building that draws you in, or the rich tapestry of our multi-generational ministry, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE!
May God guide and direct you in all things, as our spire does the boats in Mahone Bay, and may God’s love ring as clear and true in your heart as our bells do across the waters of our beautiful home bay.
