About Us

St. John’s Church, Lafayette Square is a downtown Episcopal parish located at the corner of Sixteenth and H Streets, NW, across from the White House. St. John’s welcomes all to come and worship—whether prospective or regular members, persons seeking a moment of solitude during the day, or visitors to the city looking for a Sunday service in English or Spanish.

In all of this—worship, Christian education, parish life, and outreach—we seek to expand our horizons. Through worship we expand ourselves to perceive and praise our God. In educational opportunities we seek to explore our faith as we expand our minds. In the parish community and in the world, we seek to integrate worship and education into an expansive way of living in the world: serving God anywhere and everywhere by loving one another because God first loved us.
