Our mission is to declare the Good News of God in Christ through worship, prayer, education and outreach.  We work with other churches, the Deanery and the Diocese to proclaim the Gospel.

The Chapel of St. John the Divine is a small neighborhood Episcopal church serving North Kingstown, South Kingstown, West Kingston, Narragansett and Exeter, Rhode Island. Parishioners participate in weekly services, fellowship and ministries that create a warm sense of family and belonging. We welcome visitors and summer parishioners.

Sunday service takes place in person and online at 9:00 a.m. every week, following Rite II. Visit us in Saunderstown, off Boston Neck Road, down Ferry Road and across Willett Road to Church Way, park on the street (but please avoid parking on the Chapel side of Church Way).

To join our Sunday livestream services online, visit our YouTube channel.

Parishioners and visitors alike enjoy the picturesque location in the village of Saunderstown on Narragansett Bay. The Chapel of St. John the Divine is a hub of village social life, with its longstanding traditions of the summer fair (held for nearly 60 years) and ice cream social along with an annual concert of the Lafayette Band (since just after World War II).

The doors of the Chapel are always open for prayer and quiet reflection.
