 1940 Hymn #277 Played by Clyde McLennan


St. James Anglican Church is located in the heart of Sandy Springs, Georgia -- a suburb of Atlanta. Established in 1967 by Bishop Frank H. Benning St. James continues following the traditional Anglican faith in this ever increasing modern era. Our services come from the traditional 1928 Book of Common Prayer and we are here for those seeking a traditional worship experience based in the solemn beauty and dignity of the Anglican Faith. Our service music is the Grand Traditional 1940 Hymnal Standard Harmony Edition as required by the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and is provided in glorious Pipe Organ by Clyde McLennan.

We at St. James are a diverse mix of Christians bound by common beliefs, and a shared appreciation for the Christian fellowship our church provides. St. James is commitment to preserving the beautiful language and solemn dignity of traditional Anglican rituals. Some of us are former Episcopalians; others are Anglicans from around the world.

St. James Anglican Church was founded in 1967 and celebrated it's 45 Years of Faith, in the summer of 2012. Our church is a converted farmhouse dating back to the Pre-Civil War Era. Surrounded by massive, ancient trees in nearly three rolling green acres of beautiful park-like settings in what is now Sandy Springs; St. James provides not only the Anglican tradition, our location harkens back to a more calm and peaceful time, amidst the hustle and bustle of a busy and growing modern city.

We are a small church, with a goal of making visitors feel at home while witnessing the saving power and grace of Jesus Christ. Currently our services are held only on Sunday at 11am unless otherwise indicated. However as time progresses we expect to expand our programs.

Holy Communion is held the first and third Sunday of the month, with Morning Prayer on the second and fourth Sunday of the month.

We welcome all, including Episcopalians who long for traditional Anglicanism which has long since faded from their current services.

St. James Anglican Church is the home Cathedral of The Anglican Episcopal Diocese, South and a proud member of the ACIC / ACUSA with oversight from The Rt. Rev. Larry W. Johnson of The Anglican Church of Virginia.
