Welcome to St.John’s Church: A Living Testament to Heritage and Faith.

Situated in the heart of Vellore and widely known as the Fort Church in local circles, St. John’s Church proudly stands as a timeless sanctuary.  Our journey dates back to 1761 when the East India Company’s troops first landed in Vellore Fort, marking the inception of a thriving Christian congregation.
