Overview: St. James Orthodox Church is a new Pan-Orthodox Christian Community, serving the Lord's faithful of Buckingham, Prince Edward, Appomattox, and Cumberland Counties in the heartland of Virginia. Born from the seed of one email last year, St. James Orthodox Church is now a growing and dynamic community of Orthodox Christians of various backgrounds and ethnicities.
It seems that each day adds a new vitality to the parish, as the faithful embrace their new spiritual home. The Church's close location to two bustling college campuses, Hamden-Sydney College and Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, provides spiritual nourishment and a sacramental life for Orthodox Christian Students, who find themselves away from their home parish. Additionally, St. James Orthodox Mission will lend significant support and ministry to the Orthodox Christian Fellowship Chapters of both schools.
Everyone is invited to our services and events -- come and worship and pray with us. Inquirers are always welcome! We hope to see you soon!
Christ is in Our Midst! He is and Always Shall Be!
