For over a hundred years, St. John’s Presbyterian Church has been proclaiming God’s Word and sharing God’s love in Devon and Chester County.
Starting in 1892 as a Sunday School and then chartered as “Devon Chapel” the following year, we officially joined with the Presbyterian Church in 1903 and changed our name to St. John’s.Download an in-depth history of the church
But the true history of a church is not to be found in earthly records and written words, which contain only the appointments of ministers, acquisition of property, erection of buildings, and other external events. They do not tell of the prayers said or songs sung, the influence and direction given by members and ministers, the spirit of Rally Days, Sunday School Picnics, and Vacation Bible Schools. Nor do they tell of the weddings, baptisms, and funerals, the joys and the sorrows, the sacrifices and the generous donations, the full life and ministry of St. John’s Presbyterian Church of Devon, Pennsylvania.
