Community Partnerships & Missions
Annual Harmonies of Hope Concert
This event is a yearly fundraising concert held at St. James and sponsored by the Outreach Commission with all proceeds designated to help feed the hungry in Henderson County. Donations are sought from underwriters to begin the fundraising process and concert tickets are sold as an additional source of revenue.
St. James has a relationship with six churches in Cuba whom we pray for, raise funds for, and plan mission trips to when that possibility exists.
Hendersonville Hunger Walk
The Henderson County Hunger Coalition has a yearly fundraiser which St. James has been supporting for many years. Groups of parishioners both walk and actively solicit funds for this vital ministry of the community. The walk is traditionally held on the 3rd weekend in September.
Blessings in Boxes
The Storehouse of Henderson County partners with local elementary schools in Henderson County to identify families that need assistance at Christmas. St. James is one of many local churches that help bring Christmas joy to children and teens to ensure no child is overlooked. We seek to sponsor 150+ children every season.
Our Little Roses
We support Our Little Roses, a non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to rescuing young girls in Honduras from situations of risk, empowering and transforming them in a loving atmosphere of unity, respect, and security into successful women with moral and spiritual values strengthened through the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jenny McConnachie & Touching Acts
Jenny McConnachie is our medical missionary in South Africa. St. James supports Jenny’s work through the Outreach Commission.
American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem
A nonpolitical, nonsectarian 501(c)(3) organization, AFEDJ is dedicated to raising financial support for schools, hospitals, and centers for children with disabilities in Palestine, Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon. These institutions serve everyone, irrespective of their religion, ethnicity or ability to pay. They build hope for all in the Holy Land. The Christian values of equity, justice, and respect for the dignity of all are at the heart of our efforts.
