Built in 1908 to the Romanesque revival design of architect H.H. Mott and replacing an earlier wooden church on the same site, Saint James's red brick and sandstone exterior make it unique among Woodstock's churches.

Saint James was a Methodist church, continuing a local Methodist history going back to the mid-1830's when the denomination’s first church was built on Lower Main Street. The congregation moved to the present site in 1857, and, in 1925, the Methodists became part of the new United Church of Canada.

off the coast of Newfoundland. His replacement, Reverend Samuel Joll, arrived from England in 1833, the year the first church was built. When fire destroyed this building in 1835, immediate plans were made for construction of a new church on the same site. In 1857 the congregation decided to move to a new location, the corner of Chapel and Green streets where Saint James United Church now stands. Although the church was not completed until 1869, the congregation began worshipping in the basement in 1859. (Submitted on September 7, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
