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 at 906 South Orleans Avenue each Sunday. Each service has its own 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 with Sunday School for children during the early part of the service, and the 11:15 a.m. service is traditional, with spectacular choral music in the Anglican style.  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. Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall, a time for fellowship, follows the 9:15 a.m. service.

All in-person meetings and events, including Sunday services, have been cancelled or postponed for the time being. Click here to see a listing of virtual worship and ministries. St. John’s will stream the 9:15 a.m. service on Facebook Live.

The Chapel of the Resurrection, outdoors in the courtyard, is open 24/7. Please practice social distancing measures with others.
