Saint John the Evangelist Church was founded in 1875, when members of the Saint Stephen's Guild of Trinity Church Newport, decided to start a mission in the Point section of Newport. The new mission held its first service on Sunday, July 11, 1875. From its earliest days, S. John's offered traditional Anglican worship to persons of all races. It was the first Episcopal church on Aquidnecl Island to celebrate the Eucharist every Sunday, and its founders included several African-Americans. The present building was made possible when Miss Sarah Titus Zabriskie inherited a vast sum from her mother, Sarah Jane Titus Zabriskie. She funded the construction of a new sanctuary to be built of brownstone in the style of an English parish church of the 13th century. St John's was the first parish in North America to affiliate with Forward in Faith UK.
