Your Church During COVID-19
In light of the ongoing and ever-changing situation with the COVID-19 virus, the St. James website is your best source for all service updates, contribution options, and access to sermons.
Based on the feedback we received from the surveys, beginning on June 6, the worship schedule will be:
10:00 am: Morning Prayer, with organ and hymn, on Zoom
10:45ish: virtual coffee hour, on Zoom (uses the same link as the 10:00 service)
11:30 am: said Morning Prayer in the Memorial Garden
As was the case with the outdoor services last year, you must sign up in advance, via SignUpGenius as there is a strict limit of 30 attendees. Masks and distancing will also be required.
We are beginning the process of working through the very lengthy checklist for resuming services in the church proper. The goal is to return to that space by the end of the summer, and to resume our normal, pre-pandemic schedule of 8:00 and 10:00 am services sometime in the fall. The 10:00 service will also be live streamed in some way to allow those who are unable to attend in person to do so safely.

Welcome to St. James Episcopal Church. St. James was established on the green in Woodstock, Vermont in 1827 and today is 100% handicap accessible.
St. James is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont, a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion.
The church body of St. James is bound together by the love of God and the love of our neighbors. We are inspired by the founding story of our church.
We are a community of people who come together to worship God in the Episcopal tradition. Through Jesus Christ, and in unity with the Holy Spirit, we seek renewal and growth as we worship God, serve each other and serve our wider community.
