Welcome to St. John's!

Interior of St. John's

St. John’s is an inclusive, progressive, authentic, and joyful community. We dare to see the world as it is, and strive to change it into the world that God would have it be.

We are glad you are visiting our web home, and invite you join us for worship and fellowship.

We are an Episcopal congregation located in beautiful Montclair, N.J. just blocks from the Walnut Street train station and shopping district. We offer two services each Sunday during the school year, at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. (one service at 9:30 a.m. during the summer).  Children gather for Church School prior to the main service, then join their families for Holy Communion.

 


 

Welcome Our New Rector!

St. John’s welcomed a new Rector in early September. The Rev. Candace C. Sandfort brings a deep love for and knowledge of Scripture and childrens’ spirituality to our faith community. We are very excited to have her join our parish.

 

 

 

 


Blessing of the Animals

"And God said, 'Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky.' So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves. . . ."
