WELCOME TO ST. JOHN'S CHAPEL
Built in 1891 by a group of Trustees in the nearby Villages of Fairbank and Barneck, St. John's Chapel has roots extending back over 125 years. It was founded as a small Methodist congregation at the southern end of Tilghman's Island, Maryland. It served all residents of the Island, but particularly those residing in the villages of Fairbank and Bar Neck. It remained active until the 1970's. Friends of St. John's Chapel was formed to maintain and preserve the historic Chapel, grounds and cemetery. Today, the church is once again active and in addition to non-denominational Sunday morning services on the first and third Sundays, hosts a traditional Homecoming, Christmas Eve, and Easter Sunrise service.
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
A visit to St. John's is like stepping back in time, with its tin ceiling and walls and original stained glass windows. The chapel boasts a working bell tower with simple clapboard exterior and the peaceful "Joy's Garden" for meditation.
St. John's Chapel hosts a non-denominational service on the first and third Sundays of the month at 10:00 AM. A weekly prayer meeting is held at the Chapel on Wednesday's at 6:00 PM.
The Chapel is available for weddings, baptisms, anniversaries, renewal of vows, funeral and celebration of life services. Contact us to schedule a tour of the Chapel or to talk to someone about your special event.
