About Our Church

 In 1975 a group of hearty souls felt the need for an Episcopal Church on Pine Island. For its first years it met in a number of places including the VFW, Pine Island Cove's Club House and the Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. Finally in 1978, St. John's had a home of its own when its sanctuary was built on the site it presently occupies at 7771 Stringfellow Road. St. John's is located centrally for most parts of the Island, being 3.5 miles south of Island Center and 5.5 miles north of St. James City. 

    We are a congregation numbering 150 hearty souls who are involved in all areas of Island life, especially in F.I.S.H., the library, the PTA of Pine Island elementary school,Greater Pine Island Chamber of Commerce, Pine Island Boat Club, St. James Civic Center, Greater Pine Island Civic Association, Calusa Land Trust, And many more organizations. We are especially active in caring for our community and its citizens. We exist for mission which honors our Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do. We are an integral part of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida which stretches from Hernando County in the north to Collier County in the south and contains 80 churches. Our Diocese is a part of the Episcopal Church in the United States and beyond that is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion with the seat of it Archbishop, The Most Rev. George Carey at Centerbury in England. We trace our ancestry as a church to the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church, tracing its lineage through the centuries to the disciples themselves, who were part and particle of the ministry of Jesus. The Anglican Communion is based on the principles of Scripture, Tradition and Reason.

St. John's is a welcoming church, becoming a warm, accessible landmark in the Island Community. We love visitors among us. We have an active youth group and Sunday School. We have Christian Education for all ages. Our women's organization, The Episcopal Church Women is very active in many facets of life on the Island and yearly they sponsor a rummage sale of some size.


We hope that you will come and worship with us soon and prayerfully consider becoming a member of our community of faith at St. John's!
