A beautiful place. My family and friends were looking for a church to join, and we decided to check this one as a possible place of worship for us, so we went to the Dec. 16 Concert Gala. The temple was beautiful and the people seemed welcoming. However, during the first concert with the Boys Choir, my mother was quietly explaining the event to our friends, who are new to the United States. A woman who was seated with her family in front of us began to grumble very obviously but we paid it no mind as we assumed she was complaining of something that had nothing to do with us. How wrong we were! After twenty minutes of hearing her murmur and seeing her stare at us, she scolded us incredibly rudely! We were so incensed we reacted. We thought everything was over, until i saw her snap a photograph of us! She then said she would tell the artistic Director of the Boy's Choir, Carole Nelson, that we had been speaking during her presentation. I was appalled and told her that she should not be taking a strangers' picture without their permission. But it doesn't end there. She began to film a video of us! At this point i am ashamed to say i was incensed! I had never been so blatantly violated in a place of worship, and so i presented a rather rude finger for her future perusal of her illicitly taken video of me and my family and friends. I have never before encountered such judgment, she did not even give us a chance to explain ourselves before everything happened, she just turned to us and rudely scolded us and then took our picture and taped us to tattle like a boorish and bitter child. It doesn't end there! She began shadowing our group all throughout the jazz hall concert afterward! My friends will not be telling their family to join this church, and i will not recommend it to anyone either. There is no use for a beautiful temple if the people who are members of the congregation there treat newcomers in this way.

I was amazed at how quickly my family and I fit in at Saint Johns Church. I have gone to a few Houston churches, but haven't found the right fit until now.
While there are a lot of churches in Houston, this Houston church really feels like home. I'm new to the area and am a spiritual person, so finding the right church to me was the first order of business after we got settled. Now, Texas feels a little more like home.

The Church of St John the Divine is a place that I feel completely at ease. There's something about St. John that makes you feel as if whatever is troubling - is not as important as you are making it to be. There is a solution to every problem, and coming it reminds me of this everytime. Its my place to go when I need to feel centered.

the interior of the church is very nice, this is truly a place to come to feel closer to God. The music and choir were one of the best i have heard. I could only stay for just under and hour but it was enough for me to walk out of there feeling like i was more connected with the people and environment around me.
