What To Expect

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 the summer (starting Memorial Day weekend) we have one service on Sunday morning at 10:00 am. The service is simple and joyful with communion and friendly childcare in our atrium. The service is traditional – but never stuffy! The service is about an hour, and is followed by lemonade, coffee and treats out on our lawn.

How long do services last?

The services runs about an hour.

What about Holy Communion?

We celebrate the Holy Eucharist every Sunday.  We believe that the Eucharist is food for the journey of life, not a reward for the perfect believer. Children are welcome to receive communion, or if you would prefer, one of the clergy team can give a blessing. All are welcome at God’s table!

Where can I park?

Parking on the street is free on Sundays in Georgetown.  We’re located at 3240 O St. NW in Georgetown, on the south-east corner of O St. NW and Potomac St. NW.
