St. James’ Episcopal Church is located on East Genesee Street in downtown Skaneateles. The church building is 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.  St. James’ offers 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 all Sunday worship services. Wednesday is Evening Prayer found in the Book of Common Prayer.  Each Sunday service is intentionally family-friendly as all ages are welcome at any service.  Be sure to check out the kid corner in the rear of the church full of toys, activity baskets, and space to spread out during worship. The Nave is also handicap accessible however should you need additional assistance, please feel free to ask a greeter or call ahead to the Parish Office.
