Having been called to this congregation in early 2017, I am impressed with the joy and warmth the people exude, and the many ways this joy of the Spirit shows up in our ministries and our worship.

All are welcome! We welcome everyone to worship with us at St. James’, long-time Episcopalians as well as persons from other religious traditions, seekers new to the Christian faith, or those who have never experienced corporate worship in any form. We provide bulletins to make it easy for everyone to fully participate in the service, the prayers, and the hymns.

When we return to post-COVID “normal,” our worship services will likely be held at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. Children may attend Sunday School downstairs (they reunite with their parents in the main church just before Holy Eucharist) or they may stay with their family for the entire service.



We are located at 11815 Seven Locks Road in Potomac, MD.  There is ample free parking. If the front lot is full, you’ll find a larger parking lot behind the church.


Please contact our Rector if you are in need of Baptism for yourself or your child, Confirmation or Reception into the Anglican Church for yourself or your teen, Reconciliation, Matrimony, and Unction (anointing of the sick or dying). The Rector can be reached at or (301) 762-8040.

Wherever you are on your faith journey, you will find St. James’ members who are willing to walk with you. Our hearts and doors are open to all!
