St. John's Church, Washington DC

At St. John's Church, we believe Christ is calling us to be a renewed church in a changing world. Empowered by the Spirit of God, we respond to Jesus' call as we deepen our bond with Christ through worship, become a community where all are accepted, and work together as laity and clergy to do God's work in the world.

Wherever you are in your life with God -- whether a hesitant searcher or a regular churchgoer -- we invite you to worship with us and to think of St. John's as your spiritual home.

We invite you to join us in our services and enjoy the love and saving grace of Christ in a loving, welcoming congregation.

We invite you to find God through our liturgy, through the beauty of St. John's historic building, and through our ministry of music.

We invite you to participate in parish activities and in community outreach through which we are enabled to serve Christ in others, particularly those in need in the community.

St. John's Church is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. The church closes at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Parish House office hours are listed above.
