Welcome to St. John’s Anglican Church website. We are a parish community whose 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 is a recently-ordained deacon in the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others. He grew up in rural, western Colorado, and came to faith while attending college. He met his wife, Christina, while studying for his M.Div at Fuller Seminary and she was studying for her PHD in pediatric psychology. Their son Emmett will turn 2 this fall.
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, 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.
