A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

St. James United Church is located in the heart of the town of Antigonish at the corner of Main Street and Church Street. Established in 1804, the church has been a part of the changes which have taken place in the town, the province, and the country over the past two hundred years.

We are a congregation within the United Church of Canada and are pleased to welcome people of all backgrounds from the town and county to our community of faith. We are also pleased to be the "home  away from home" for students attending St. Francis Xavier University and the participants at the Coady International Institute.  

Join Us Sunday Morning!

Worship is at 10:30 am
followed by refreshments and conversation in the hall

We are proud to offer barrier-free entry and accessible washrooms. Our nursery is staffed by volunteers from the congregation and is a quiet place for babies and toddlers who need a break from the service. There are toys and a speaker for parents to hear the service.
Please join us for worship!
