Welcome to St. John’s Church, Western Run Parish, an Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Maryland.



The Mission of St. John’s Church, Western Run Parish, is to be a caring, Christ-centered community committed to encouraging discipleship and service within our congregation and beyond.



We are an energetic parish that is empowered by God’s grace which strengthens our faith and nurtures a Christian community here amongst our neighbors and throughout the world.

We aspire to be a safe place where everyone may come to explore God and faith. We hope to learn from each other as we journey together to become all we are created to be for ourselves, each other and the world. We know we have fun.

We invite you to “Come and See”.
