Welcome to St. John’s

We welcome you to St. John’s Church in the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida, a vibrant, growing Episcopal parish in South Tampa. We hold three services in our lovely historic church each Sunday, each with a distinct personality. The 8:00 a.m. service is quiet, reverential, and brief, the 9:15 a.m. service is family-oriented and full of congregational music, and the 11:15 a.m. service is traditional, with spectacular choral music in the Anglican style. (Please note, during July, we have two services. A combined service at 10:00 a.m. takes the place of the 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. services this month.)

Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall, a time for fellowship, follows the 9:15 a.m. service (or the 10:00 a.m. service during July). Sunday School for children takes place in the Parish Hall during the 9:15 a.m. service (10:00 a.m. in July). Children of all ages are welcome in the Church at all services and there is a nursery for children under three years old at the 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. services (10:00 a.m. in July).
