St. John's Episcopal Church in Medina, New York is the oldest church congregation in Orleans County.

Built of Medina Sandstone, the first service was held on Christmas Eve 1838 and structure was completed in 1841.  The interior of the building has been carefully restored, an ongoing process and work continues to maintain the fine stained glass windows commissioned by families as memorials over the years. There are two mosaic memorials by Jacob Holzer.

Rite II Sunday Services are held at 10:30 each week, the Reverend Nancy Guenther officiating.

Study classes led by Nancy Guenther are ongoing, with books and materials selected for the appropriate liturgical season. Children's religious education and nursery care are also available.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has drawn attention to the Episcopal Church after giving the sermon at the royal wedding in May:
