The parishioners of St. John's Episcopal Church invite you to join us on a spiritual journey. St. John's Church is a eucharistically based faith community of neighbors and families celebrating different understandings of the Christian faith within the Episcopal Church. As we attempt to live out our call to be the body of Christ in the world, we strive to be a beacon of justice-seeking and creativity, and to honor St. Benedict's teaching: "Let all who enter here be received as Christ." St. John's, a community of individuals from many religious backgrounds, is located at the intersection of Revere Street and Roanoke Avenue in the Sumner Hill section of Jamaica Plain.
Please join us for Sunday worship at 9:30 AM each Sunday during the summer . Visitors are warmly welcomed to coffee and conversation following the service.

Calling a New Rector
After 21 years of faithful service, our beloved rector Rev. Anne Fowler retired. Our interim rector, Rev. Bill Eddy, has joined the St. John's community as we undergo the process of finding a permanent replacement.
We have entered into a Transition. We are nearly finished with the 2nd phase that collects our parish wants and needs to develop our Parish Profile. (We completed the first phase when we celebrated the retirement of our Rector Anne Fowler and her 21-year ministry.)
Ongoing: St. John's has a great arts outreach program, fueled by the incredible energy of Ken Brooks, called JP Concerts. This is music for the whole community, so they are trying to make low-cost concerts accessible to everyone. The venue just can't be beat - our own beautiful sanctuary! To learn more about JP Concerts and its upcoming events, visit the JP Concerts web site.
Parish Work Days
A Half Day Each Month: Parish Work Days are a great way to get involved, meet other parishioners, and help the Church save money as we struggle to maintain our beautiful space. For information on upcoming Work Days, please click here.
