Find out what St John the Divine Episcopal Church is all about.
We offer the greater Burlington Community a traditional style of service without being stuffy.
St John, the Divine Episcopal Church, is a small, eucharistic-based, liturgical church that is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee and, in the broader scope, the Episcopal Church USA and the Anglican Church Community.
We believe our church is more than just a building; instead, it’s all of us. We are a group of people who wants to help others and show Christ’s love to our community and world.
Rooted in Tradition
Our worship style is more traditional (bells, candles, processions, and more) but still low church.
We encourage you to participate or observe as your comfort level allows when you join us.
We invite you to check us out and see if we might be the right fit for you.
We mean all are welcome
Our congregation is a mix of ages, races, abilities, political affiliations, and sexual orientations.
Together we form a congregation with one goal, spreading the love of Christ to our community.
Besides worship, we like to work together within and outside the church walls. We do so to give back to the community that gives to us.
The congregation loves enjoying a meal or fun time together. We would like you to join us!
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
Music at St John the Divine is traditional with a twist, hymns, and chants. Most selections come from the Episcopal 1982 Hymnal.
We encourage all to sing!
When we sing together, we sing better than anyone of us alone.
To support our singing, we use our organ, plus we use it for other music in our service.
We have even used it to accompany a silent film!
Lay Preaching Course
Did you know you can give a sermon during our Morning Pray Sundays? Well, you can after you take Fr Matthew’s Lay Preaching Course!
Blessing of the Animals
Do you have a loved animal (living or stuffed) that you would like blessed? If so, join us on October 2nd. You do not have to be a church member or Episcopalian (neither does your critter) to get a blessing on one of God’s critters.
Trunk or Treat!
St John’s is hosting Trunk or Treat in our parking lot. Bring your little ghouls and goblins for treats and fun! This event is open up to the community.
All Souls Service – Songs & Words of Comfort
We are hosting a community-wide service within our tradition to remember those friends and loved ones who have passed on before us. We will use traditional hymns of comfort, prayers, and readings.
Join us on November 2, 2022, at 6:30 pm with a video replay later that night.
