Welcome to St. John’s, Southampton. We are a lively parish made up of various groupings of people ranging from year-round residents to weekenders from New York City and beyond.
We offer a variety of worship services:
- the traditional quiet service of Holy Communion at 8:00am;
- a family service at 9:00am, which includes Sunday School and Holy Communion;
- followed by an 11:00am service of Morning Prayer with Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month.
The 11:00am service is suspended during the summer months while St. Andrew’s Dune Church is open. As a church incorporated to be “in communion” with the Episcopal Church of the State of New York, St. Andrew ’s Dune Church has contributed for many years to the Diocese of Long Island of the Protestant Episcopal Church and to the Discretionary Fund of the Bishop of the Diocese. St. Andrew’s also makes an annual contribution to St. John’s Church, Southampton (founded in 1912) and to the church on the nearby Shinnecock Indian Reservation.
Services are held on Sunday mornings from mid-June to late September at 11:00 am. The services are of Morning Prayer except for the first Sunday of each summer month and closing service which are services of Holy Communion. The Liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer and the Hymnal of 1940 are used. The Rector of St. John’s Church, Southampton, conducts the services as has been the practice since World War II. Sermons are delivered by visiting clergy from many denominations, although most are from the Protestant Episcopal Church. Click here to visit the Dune Church website.
We hope that when traveling through the Hamptons of Long Island you will take a moment to visit St. John’s or the Dune Church, either joining us for worship on Sunday; or by stopping by just to say a prayer. The front door is always open. We’d be most happy to hear from you.
St. John’s Church is open for prayer and rest 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Weddings, baptisms, and memorial services are scheduled throughout the year and the parish house is available to the public, free of charge, for gatherings and meetings. Contact the church secretary for more information.
