Our Location

320 address on rock in front of churchLocated in the middle of the historic gaslight district of Clifton, St John’s offers a peaceful environment in the middle of urban Cincinnati for worship and community.  We have a multi-story building with an iconic architecture.  St John’s is one of numerous houses of worship including Catholic, Moslem, Presbyterian and Episcopalian located along the Clifton Ave. corridor.


The main entrance for worship and other events is along the East side of the building.  Drop off from the church driveway is available at this location.

There is ample parking close to St. John’s, but to the extent possible, we urge our members and visitors to walk or share rides when possible. The parking options include:

  • The St. John’s church parking lot
    Just behind the church. You enter it from the driveway next to the church off of Resor Ave., on the Clifton Ave. side. On Sunday mornings this lot is reserved for people who have trouble walking, families with young children, and people bringing “stuff” to the church for that day’s activities.
  • The Fairview-Clifton German Language School lot
    Located behind the St. John’s lot.  There is a walkway and gate from this lot into the St. John’s lot. Enter this lot from Clifton Ave, just north of Resor.
  • The Clifton Recreation Center lot
    Located across McAlpin from the Fairview-Clifton School. Enter this lot from McAlpin Ave. and walk across the school property to the school lot and the gate to St. John’s. If you are driving north on Clifton to reach the church, turn left onto Resor, right on Middleton, and right on McAlpin to reach this lot, because there is no left turn from Clifton Ave. northbound onto McAlpin.
  • On-street parking
    Parking is available on Resor Ave. in front of the church, on both sides of Clifton Ave, and along Middleton Ave.

Do not park in the Annunciation Church lot across Resor Ave. from the church.
