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.

Children’s Chapel (11 a.m. worship):

We celebrate the return of Children’s Chapel during 11 a.m. worship. Most Sundays from early September through May 28, children from birth through grade 5 are invited to participate in a special liturgy just for them. Clergy and lay helpers will lead children in a song, homily, and prayer time in the Children’s Chapel space on the second floor of the Parish House. Children are invited to gather by the stairs in the front of the altar during the gradual hymn before the Gospel is read. They will return to the sanctuary during the Peace. Parents are welcome to accompany their children, and encouraged to do so for those younger than three. Children are always welcome to stay and worship in the sanctuary. For more information contact the Rev. Sarah Akes-Cardwell.
