A church is
not simply a building, but people. However, the building is a reflection
of those people, both past and present. The structure itself reflects the history and aspirations of those who built it.
Inside, we see pews, windows, plaques, paintings, hangings, all of the
furnishings, donated with love and dedicated to the glory of God.
In the pages
that follow, you will have an opportunity to glimpse something of our
history since the original parish church was built on this site in
1876. From the days of the stagecoach to the 21st century present,
Saint James' has been a gathering place where parishioners have welcomed
visitors to worship in Christian fellowship, helping to bring the
healing message of Christ to the community. Above all, it is a
place where those who have entered its doors have felt the presence of
God - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
