Seen overhead when approaching the altar of St. John's is the inscription "Come onto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." The church features a gigantic pipe organ and blue-tone stained glass windows. The congregation is a mix of locals, retirees and seasonal visitors to Southampton. Sunday school for children takes place during 9am Sunday services. The Reverend Peter Larsen has been rector since 1989. The church is affiliated with the non-denominational St. Andrew's Dune Church on Gin Lane. St. John's moves its 11 am service to Dune Church from Father's Day through the end of September.
