22 May – Worship Service and Fr. Dennis’ Retirement Party

After four wonderful years with us and our sister church, St. Boniface Augsburg, Fr. Dennis Krumlauf and his wife Jane are headed back to the US to enjoy retirement and their grandchildren.

While Fr. Dennis and Jane are leaving, the rest of us will still be here, worshipping together every second and fourth Sunday at St Jakob’s, at 16:00. Right now, we’ll have Evening Prayers services with hymns, under the direct guidance of Bishop Pierre at the American Catherdral in Paris. We are looking for our next priest, and plan to have other retired Episcopalian, Anglican and Lutheran priests conduct communion services from time to time, with a vision of increasing the overall service schedule to every Sunday.

Come grow with us.

10 April 2016 – Worship Service, Despite Expected Protests

Our regular semi-monthly service will still take place as planned on 10 April 2016, at 4pm (16:00). However, due to the expected Turkish/Kurdish protests planned for that day in the Jakobsplatz, the service will be upstairs, on the first floor. There is an elevator.

Our small parking lot will be open, but street parking might be tight. The Jakobsgarage will be open. If you wish to take public transit, use either the Weißer Turn (U1) or Plärrer stop (U1, U2/U3).

Easter 2016 at St. James! Remember to spring forward an hour…

Easter falls on the 4th Sunday of March this year, so we will be having an Easter Service!

Worship starts at 16:00, with Coffee Hour (and sweets!) following, all in the large parish hall at the Jakobskirche (2nd floor, elevator access)

Remember to “spring forward” on Saturday night – Daylight Savings/Summer Time begins this Saturday night in Europe.

Evening Prayer Service and Annual General Meeting, 26 April 2015, 16:00

Our Annual General Meeting will be called to order at 17:00 (5pm) on 26 April, after a brief Evening Prayer communion service starting at 16:00 (4pm). All members should attend if possible.

Please consider joining the Bishop’s Committee – this mostly involves attending a monthly meeting, at a time agreed to by the other committee members. There are three two-year slots and one one-year slot up for vote at this year’s Annual General Meeting, and two Committee members eligible for re-election. Feel free to ask any of the existing Bishop’s Committee members or Rev. Dennis if you have any interest in helping St. James the Less in this way.

Bishop’s Visit and Confirmation Service – 13 July 2014, 16:00

Bishop Pierre will be here from Paris to conduct our regular service and confirm one of our members. After the service, we’ll have coffee and lots of cakes. As always, everyone is welcome!

Since the World Cup final will be the same evening, we recommend that you take public transit, if possible, as parking will probably be scarce.

Time: 16:00 (4pm)

Location: Jakobskirche, Jakobsplatz 1, 90402 Nuremberg

Nearest U-Bahn stations: Weisser Turm (U1), Plaerrer (U1, U2, U3)


Palm Sunday 2014 – April 13, 16:00

Come celebrate Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week with St. James! Along with the palms and a small procession, we’ll be doing a multi-part, dramatic reading of the Passion (in English). As always, there will be coffee, tea and snacks after the service.

Time: 16:00 (4pm)

Location: the usual – Jakobskirche, Jakobsplatz 1, 90402 Nuremberg
