A welcoming message for the Church of St. John the Evangelist, Chews Landing, NJ

From our Interim Rector

Welcome to the website for St. John the Evangelist, Chews Landing. We are delighted you are visiting our online home.  I hope you will take the time to look around this site. Check out our activities and photos.  Read our newsletter, The Messenger. You will discover we are a small but growing and active parish. Our website will answer many questions you may have about us.

If you are looking for a church to visit while in the area we hope you will stop in.  We are a liturgical church and most people find us very warm and inviting.

St. John’s is currently in the process of searching for a new Rector.  In this interim period, we are experimenting with a variety of worship styles. We generally worship using the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer and The Hymnal 1980.  If this is your first experience in Episcopal worship our members will be happy to help you in using these books. If you are looking for a new church home please give us a try. All people are welcome, and children are especially welcome and encouraged to be a part of our community.  All persons of faith are invited to join us at the altar for Holy Communion; it does not matter your age or faith background.  Feel free to contact the Parish Office or the Rector if you have any needs or questions.

May God bless you in your life and ministry, and thank you again for visiting us. We hope to see you in church!


Don Caron,

Interim Rector
