Life At Greater St. John


Our mission is based on strong inherent principles that have remained steadfast since the church's founding. It is our objective to provide and create an environment that encourages worshipers to experience the Holy Spirit through mission work and outreach programs. Greater Saint John continuously strives to be a force for social justice in the church and throughout our local and global communities.


I’m New What to Expect:

Attending a Sunday morning worship service is one of the best ways to learn more about the Greater Saint John AME Church. The five steps below will help you when you choose to come visit us.


  • Parking is available on Sunday mornings on Throop Street, 62nd Street directly across from the church in the lot on the right hand side of the street.


  • Next, greeters will welcome you at the door and may answer any questions you may have. If you have children 6th grade or under, ask directions to the Church School, where you can check them in to safe and fun classes.
