We know that visiting a church for the first time makes many people nervous. At St. John’s, we try to remember what it’s like to be in your shoes. We do our best to anticipate your questions and to ensure that you feel welcome and comfortable here.

What time are services on Sunday morning?
During Summer, we have one Sunday Service at 10 a.m. During the regular school year, we have two Sunday Services: At 9:00 a.m. there’s a shortened traditional Eucharistic worship service (no choir). At 11:00 a.m., our main traditional Choral Eucharist takes place in the church. If your preferred worship style is glorious choral music and great liturgy, then this is the service for you.
How long do services last?
The 9:00 a.m. lasts about 45-50 minutes, while the 11:00 a.m. service runs a little over an hour.
What about Holy Communion?
We celebrate the Holy Eucharist every Sunday at every service and believe we believe that the Eucharist is food for the journey of life, not a reward for the perfect believer. All are welcome at God’s table.
Where can I park?
We’re located at 3240 O St. NW in Georgetown, on the south east corner of O St. NW and Potomac St. NW. On Sundays there’s free parking in the parking lot of Hyde-Addison Elementary School, directly across the street from St. John’s.
Do you offer programs for children?

What should I wear?
