The History of Jazz at St. James'
No matter where you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome at this table...

 St. James' Episcopal Church, founded in 1941, is an intentionally inclusive community where we work to practice a ministry of radical hospitality, in which we are welcoming, respectful, and nurturing.

Our worship is joyful! We value our beautiful, spirited, and varied music. We appreciate creative expressions in liturgy and the arts. We value good preaching. We seek ways for worship to be a nurturing experience for children.

Sunday service times are 8 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 1 p.m. (Spanish Language) and 5:30 p.m. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome at this table.  To learn more, visit StJamesAustin.org.

For twenty-two years, Jazz at St. James' has presented top-flight jazz concerts, workshops and worship services as an outreach to the Austin community. Our artists have included David "Fathead" Newman, Hank Crawford, Cedar Walton, Javon Jackson, Donald Harrison, Louis Hayes,  James Polk and George Cables.
