ABOUT

Diverse People, Inquiring Minds, Open Hearts

left_stjohn

Located around the corner from the busy Mission-16th Street-Valencia corridors in San Francisco’s north Mission District, St. John’s has been described by many as an oasis not only for the tranquility of our garden amidst the surrounding bustling streets, or the warm golden light that fills our soaring nave on a sunny day, but because so many have found St. John’s to be a place of loving peace, healing, and renewal in an often all-too-broken world.

Our mission is to live, love, and serve in the hope and joy of the risen Christ.

Our vision: We seek to be a Christian community in which people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, cultures, and colors are welcomed and their gifts are celebrated.

Our Core Values: We are a Eucharistic worshipping community in the Anglican tradition. Our celebration of the Holy Eucharist, marked by beautiful music, is the heart of our common life.

We are a Christ-centered community. For people of all ages, we value faith formation that engages the mind as well as the heart, and provides the foundation for vibrant lay ministry.

We have a special vocation to respect and advocate for the dignity of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people; this is a crucial element of our promise to respect the dignity of every person.

We value diversity and welcome anyone who wishes to explore Christian faith and practice.

We value connection, and strive to promote a sense of belonging among the members of the parish that readily includes newcomers. This is often talked about in terms of communication or pastoral care or hospitality, but it is fundamentally about feeling connected to God and to one another.

We value the North Mission neighborhood. Our location in this particular place spiritually anchors us and gives substance to our mission and ministry. This neighborhood keeps us grounded in reality.

WORSHIP

If you ask people what keeps them coming to St. John’s, nine times out of ten the response is: “The worship, the music, the sincerity of the worship”. “It’s real. It’s authentic. The people really pray and sing together!”. When we gather here to worship God, people really show up, bringing their entire selves, souls and bodies, to be enveloped by God’s presence. We invite you to join us in receiving the love that God is sharing with us and through us.

Music is an integral and essential part of worship at St. John’s. Our music program is known for its excellent quality and distinctive style. Our volunteer choir leads the congregation in a wide range of music, from traditional Anglican and Episcopal hymns to medieval chants and Renaissance motets to American folk music and spirituals. The choral group, Endersnight leads Compline every third Sunday of the month at 8:30 PM.
