Our Mission

 St James’ Cathedral strives to welcome all people.

 

We offer  joyful and prayerful services which combine the best of the traditional Anglican liturgy and music with modern relevance. 

You do not have to be an Anglican to enjoy our services.

Everyone is welcome to enter and partake of the sacred space that is St James’ Cathedral.

 

We aim to serve the Mission of God by:

·        Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ

·        Nurturing believers

·        Caring for those in need

·        Protecting creation and

·        Transforming unjust structures in society

 

We welcome you to our beautiful Cathedral which has been a place of sacred space for the community for well over a century. We offer a blend of traditional and contemporary Anglican liturgy, and aim to be a joyful and welcoming community.
