All Are Welcome to St. John's Episcopal Church!


St. John's Episcopal Church is located in Medina, New York near the Erie Canal at 200 East Center Street.  The oldest established church in Orleans County, St. John's offers Rite II services Sunday at 10:30 A.M. The first Sunday of the month is Morning Prayer with Eucharist. The last Sunday of the month is a regular service with a healing prayer and the anointing of oil for those who choose to participate.

Nursery is available on Sunday mornings. Religious Education includes regular study with books selected by the congregation for adults and children's education offered by our Vicar, Nancy Guenther. 

We have a Linen Closet, offering clean mended linens and blankets to those in need through the Ministry of Concern, Immaculata Home in Lockport and to refugees in Moca, Puerto Rico. Our first bundle of blankets for the 2017-2018 winter season was blessed by the Vicar and delivered in October.

The mitten tree and the MAAC barrel are now at the church, also food collected through the end of November -- early December.
