St. James’ Episcopal Church is located on East Genesee Street in downtown Skaneateles. We are blessed to be right on the water capturing the amazing views of Skaneateles Lake.  2016 was the bicentennial year of the congregation, though the present building is “younger” and has recently undergone significant construction including a new roof and renovations to the nave and chapel.  It is a great blessing for us to offer four unique services each week, providing a diverse range of worship options from quiet contemplative to formal to high-energy praise services. Eucharist or Communion is celebrated at every service. The casual Sunday service is intentionally family-friendly. All are welcome at any of the worship times.
