Welcome to St. John's Episcopal Church

Hampton, Virginia

St. John's Church is the oldest English-speaking parish in America, founded in 1610. The church of St. John's is a 1728 worship building displaying beautiful colonial brickwork.

These statements are true, but they are not the Church.

St. John's Church is the people who worship here, pray here, learn here, and serve here. There is one more ingredient which underlies it all -- God as revealed in Jesus Christ and experienced by the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is God who makes us one body and empowers us to be more than we could ever be by ourselves. The people who are St. John's change from generation to generation, but one thing never changes: this is a place where God's people open themselves to His solace and strength, His pardon and renewal.

Come grow with us!

TAIZ… SERVICES OF PEACE & RECONCILIATION

SECOND SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH
BEGINNING OCTOBER 5th at 4:00pm

Tudor RoseJoin us for a 45 minute service of Peace and Reconciliation in the manner of Taizť. This style of service is one of quiet reflection, scripture readings, prayer and singing. Central to the service is a time of silence to bring peace and refreshment to the soul. Nothing is more conducive to a communion with the living God than a meditative common prayer with singing that never ends. Come and experience this holy time together. The service is open to all.
