St. James is a friendly, casual church where all kinds of people join in a shared journey of faith. Young people, senior citizens, singles, couples, and families find a warm welcome and spiritual companionship.
Worship at St. James is based on celebration and we warmly invite you to join us. Visitors, newcomers, inquirers, and members of other churches and faiths are always welcome to take part in Sunday services, educational opportunities for all ages, and a variety of outreach and social activities.
We are located in Midvale, just south of the I-215 Union Park Exit, about 15 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. We serve Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Holladay, Murray, Sandy, and other south valley communities.
Regular Sunday Services are at 8:00 am and 10:00 am. During the summer, a popular and informal outdoor Communion is celebrated at 8:00 am. Service times may vary on Holidays or special events. Please check our calendar for updated information. Everyone is welcome to join us in worship at any of our services.
