St. John’s Episcopal Church, Hampton, Virginia

A Church is not a museum for saints but a hospital for sinners.

St. John’s is a historic church. If you saw it from the outside, surrounded by an equally historic cemetery, you might mistake it for a museum. It is so much more.

It is a place of grace, growth, and healing. It is a place to hear the word of God and then be equipped to share that word. It is a place that welcomes and values all the children of God. It is place that honors our heritage but strives to move forward and outward.

Moving Forward

Let’s Journey

They say that if you get 100 Episcopalians in a room, you might find two who agree on everything. St. John’s is no different. We have people from all different backgrounds. Some have family who go back generations in this church. Others are not Episcopalians and have no intention of becoming Episcopalian. St. John’s just felt like home. We hope it will feel like home to you as well. If you would like some more information so you know what to expect, you can find that here.
