We follow a liturgy — an orderly series of prayers, Bible readings, hymns, and responsive readings. The priest delivers a sermon, which is followed by the the highlight of worship: Holy Communion. Communion is so important to us that we partake every week, and in fact sometimes we refer to the entire worship service as “Holy Communion”.

St. John’s is a part of the Reformed Episcopal Church in the orthodox Anglican tradition — a continuation of the oldest Christian form of worship in the English-speaking world. Our worship is meant to be a pleasing performance for God, rather than entertainment that reflects the preferences and tastes of secular society.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It is central to our faith and worship. Readings from the Old Testament, Psalms, Gospels, and Epistles form an important part of our worship every Sunday.

Our mission is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to our parish (Dunnavant Valley), North Shelby County, and beyond! We are committed to saving the lost, and praying for and serving our neighbors, no matter what their church background may be.

Communion with Christ is at the heart of what we do.
