About Us

In 1890, Bishop Atwill of the Episcopal Diocese was given the task to create new parishes in a growing Kansas City. First named Kansas City Calvary Mission, there were enough members by 1891 become an official parish; the patron saint St. John was chosen. A small frame building was purchased and moved to the edge of a pasture, of which the owner graciously let them use for the next 10 years. St. John's anglican Church in 1891
By 1902, the land had been sold to a development company and the church vestry located several lots on Kensington Ave., which at that time was the last paved street east of downtown Kansas City. The small building was moved to the new lot and the parish began the task of raising funds to build a stone church.
By September of 1903, they were able to begin construction and lay the cornerstone. As funds and materials were collected over the next 2 years, the building was finally completed and consecrated in 1905.
In 1989, the parish broke its long-standing ties to the Episcopal Diocese and celebrated its Centennial in 1991 as an Anglican church. St. John's Parish continues today, proud of its mission to serve our Lord.
