Welcome! St. John’s Tampa is a vibrant Episcopal parish located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of South Tampa.  Our mission is to proclaim, by word and example, the good news of God in Christ, and to build a spiritual community forming Christians of all ages through worship, education, and outreach. We aim to make Jesus Christ known, honored, and adored in Tampa and beyond. Please visit our beautiful historic church, hear our choir in the Anglican Choral tradition, and meet our loving Christian community. Not able to join us in person?
