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.

Livestream Ministry

St. John’s began streaming services in September 2020 before the public was even allowed to return due to Covid-19. We have continued streaming and upgraded equipment in 2022 to allow a single volunteer to control and switch among three cameras around the church.

If you have a skill for broadcast or theater tech, enjoy engaging with people on social media, or are interested in getting to know the liturgical structure of our services, you’d be a perfect volunteer for our livestream ministry. We will train you in all the skills needed, and the time commitment is just coming a half hour early and staying 10 minutes late for a service you might attend anyway.

Sign up using the form below, and someone will be in touch.
