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 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.
