History and Architecture:
1908 was the year St James became a parish in it's own right sixty years after the establishment of the City of Melbourne. The Foundation stone was laid by the Governor of Victoria on 21 October 1908. The Vicarage in Noel Street was erected at a cost of £631.The original Rose window was replaced in 2003 with one that commemorates the centenary of the Ivanhow Girls Grammar School.
Designed in freely modified Gothic style, the Church is of face red brick, with contrasting rendered bands, window dressings and plinth, and a gabled Marseilles pattern tiled roof. Surmounting the ridge of the roof is a metal clad fleche with a flared base. Tall narrow windows are arranged in groups on the north and west elevations, separated by deep rendered brick mullions. Those on the west gable end have trefoil bas-relief window heads. Other features include a pointed arched doorway and half-timbered gabled end on the north elevation.
