Welcome to St. John’s Anglican Church website. We are a new parish church community in Orinda, CA. Our mission is to celebrate and proclaim the love of God in Christ through worship, community, and service.
We worship in the beautiful Santa Maria Catholic chapel in Orinda, California (walking distance from the Orinda BART station).
Our doors are open to all. Please join us at 10am for worship on Sundays and plan to stay after for coffee hour.
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
– John 1:5
About St. John's
Jeff came to faith in his early twenties at Pacific Crossroads Church in Los Angeles (a West coast plant of Tim Keller's Redeemer ministry). He quickly became very involved in community and mercy ministry leadership, and eventually felt a call to seminary studies at Fuller in Pasadena – where he met his wife, Christina, who was getting her Phd in pediatric psychology...
Gospel & Tradition
As an Anglican church, we believe that the Spirit-inspired practices that Christians developed in the past still have the power to form us into a Gospel-shaped community of faithful Christ followers today. Thus our worship style draws from the deep well of Christian worship practice down through the ages, very much including the present.
At St. John’s we love children. Families with Children make up nearly half of our congregation. What sets us apart from other churches is that we are committed to including our children in the worshipping life of the church. Our services include a brief children's sermon, a lot of interactive liturgy, and special activities for the kids.
