Welcome

Welcome to St. James Presbyterian Church (the “Kirk”)!!cid_ii_1450991a4680368d

 

We are a community of faith that meets in a beautiful heritage building located in the downtown area of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

If it is your first time to St. James – or you are returning to St. James after a time away – please know that we are happy to have you and we hope that you find our website engaging and our community welcoming.

Of course, if you are able to join us please know that our worship is “relaxed” traditional in style, dress code comfortable, and “family-like” in our welcome.

For those of you who have children we have nursery coverage for children from birth to age three and a Children’s Worship class for children age 4 to 11.

All are welcome. We hope to see you.
