St. John’s Episcopal Church in West Hartford, CT
Find your spiritual home. Connect with our welcoming parish.
St. John’s is a welcoming, open spiritual home that offers an abundance of opportunities to connect with God and with a warm community. Our church offers a beautiful, sacred space that provides peace and tranquility to members and visitors alike. Located just where West Hartford and Hartford join geographically, our parish has a core mission of building bridges between and among the residents of our diverse communities.
A thriving crossroad where faith meets fellowship.
This is a place where meaningful, lasting connections have been created for more than 175 years. Steeped in Anglican tradition, our liturgy is hundreds of years old, yet experienced in fresh new ways. Our spiritual practice is firmly anchored in ritual and symbolism, yet progressive and accessible.
A diversity of connections to God and each other.
At St. John’s, there are so many ways to connect with our faith: through our renowned music programs, through traditional and modern forms of prayer, and through experiencing our sacred architectural space itself. Every time you venture through our big red doors, you’ll find many diverse ways to connect with an openhearted spiritual community.
You might want to join in a Sunday morning service, introduce your children to our many youth programs and education resources, or participate in weekday Bible or book study classes. On any given weekend there are popular concerts, cultural events and educational programs to choose from. You can participate locally in our community garden, preparing meals for those in need, or supporting students at several independent schools for at-risk children that St. John’s supports.
How St. Johns has adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic
In part because we had been livestreaming services since 2018, St. John’s quickly adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic with a robust program of online worship, education, and fellowship opportunities. For as long as the pandemic continues to affect our community, we will remain flexible and creative in finding safe ways to worship, make music, and provide education, pastoral support, and opportunities for connection.
An invitation to nurture your spirit and enrich your soul.
