About the Church of Saint John the Evangelist

The Church of Saint John the Evangelist is a parish of the Anglican Diocese of Niagara located in west downtown Hamilton in the Locke Street (Kirkendall) neighbourhood.

We are ordinary people seeking to follow Jesus—a challenging and fulfilling experience that brings joy to our lives in many different ways.

We worship together at different times and in a variety of worship styles. Under normal circumstances, we normally offer two services with programs for children and families each Sunday: our “Discovery Service” with our worship band, and the “Choral Service” with the parish choir and organ. 

We are an open and affirming congregation which seeks to be welcoming and inclusive of all people regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.
