Welcome to St. John's Church, Lafayette Square—a vibrant historic Episcopal church located across from the White House. We invite you to join with us for worship, Christian fellowship and outreach.


From our organization as a parish in 1815 to today, St. John's Church has provided a powerful symbol of faith in the heart of our nation's capital.


At St. John's, we believe Christ is calling us to be a renewed church in a changing world. In worship, education, parish life, and social action, we seek to expand our horizons by serving God by loving one another.

Lafayette Fellowship

The Lafayette Fellowship is a group within the church that meets throughout the year for social gatherings, lectures, museum tours, and for other opportunities to learn, meet other parishioners, serve the church and community, and have fun. The Lafayette Fellowship gatherings are open to all adults, and we encourage you to bring a friend or guest with you as a way of introducing them to St. John’s Church.

If you would like to learn more about The Lafayette Fellowship, please contact the Rev. Rob Fisher.
