St. John’s is an autonomous congregation. This means we are free and accountable only to God and to one another as we determine our congregational decisions and directions. We are pleased to partner with several faith-based alliances and organizations. Yet, no decisions or actions of any of these groups have any control over our church’s life or ministry. Our collaborations with these groups allow us to participate in and support local and global mission efforts, attend conferences and workshops, and grow as a congregation and as individuals in Christian unity.

Elizabeth Communities of Faith
St. John’s is located in the heart of the historic Elizabeth neighborhood of Charlotte. Our association with the Elizabeth Communities of Faith (ECF) connects us with other communities of faith in the area: St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, Caldwell Presbyterian Church, Hawthorne Lane United Methodist Church, and the chaplain’s offices of Novant Health Presbyterian Hospital and Mercy Hospital of Carolina’s Medical Center. ECF congregations work together to create a series of sevices during the season of Lent, Vacation Bible School, and periodically on issues important to our city and our neighborhood.
