Welcome!

St. John's is the downtown Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado. We are an inclusive, Christ-centered community reaching out to all who are seeking a deeper spirituality and relationship with God and one another. Our congregation is made up of people of every generation who come from a wide variety of backgrounds - families, children and youth are rapidly growing in numbers. We are formed and strengthened through a variety of worship services, traditional music, contemplative prayer, spiritual and social justice formation programs, as well as meaningful service within the parish, the local community and in the larger world.

Solas-Dec2014“Solas” Celtic Winter Gathering December 7th

St John’s Episcopal Church on 1419 Pine Street in Boulder is offering an evening of Celtic music and worship. On Sunday December 7th at 6:00pm the church will hold a gathering in the tradition of Celtic Christianity. Some of the hallmarks of Celtic Christianity are hospitality, equality, and inclusion; a deep connection with the earth as mother; the engagement of poetry, art, story-telling, and song; and experiential participatory worship that draws in all the senses.

Celtic musicians Jessie Burns (fiddle), Margot Krimmel (harp and vocals), Beth Gadbaw (drums and vocals), and Annie Sirotniak (guitar) will offer beautiful and meditative music and lead attendees in song.

For additional information, see this article.  View/download a flyer for the service here.

BookDriveWhittier Elementary School Book Drive

For the third year in a row, St. John's is pairing with Whittier Elementary School, our Pine Street neighbor, to provide mini-libraries to students in need. Please bring new (preferred) or very gently used books for the book drive to the book push cart in the rotunda at St. John's on Sunday mornings from now until December 14th, or to the St. John's office during the week. We'll bless the books at the 9:30 a.m. service on December 14th, and afterwards we'll sort and wrap them for delivery to Whittier that week. Click here for a list of suggested books. Students receiving the books may not be reading at grade level, so please keep this in mind when shopping for books. If you'd like to contribute money to buy books (which we can do for $1 per book from the Scholastic Book Club), please write a check to St. John's and put "Book Drive" on the memo line.

If you'd like to help with the book sorting on the 14th, please contact Pam White, 303-442-5146, ext. 107, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
