The Well at STSA
An ordinary place where extraordinary things happen
This is our guest-friendly “second service,” which takes place weekly after the Divine Liturgy. Each week, we discuss relevant, thought-provoking topics that challenge us to understand our faith more personally and engage in it more practically. We aim to communicate the depth and riches of our ancient faith, in simple and understandable ways that are relatable to the modern world.
The name comes from the story of the Samaritan woman in chapter four of the Gospel of John. To her, the well was an ordinary place that took on extraordinary meaning and significance through the encounter she had there with a Man named Jesus. She showed up at the well one way and left completely different– transformed on both the inside and the outside.
The DC Metro Area is occupied by busy metro stations, crowded malls, packed office buildings, and high-rises full of people far from home. That’s why we’re here. The goal of The Well in Arlington today is to have the same impact a certain well had in Samaria 2,000 years ago; to become an ordinary place where people meet Jesus and lives are changed forever.
Current Series: healing hurts

Based on the Sunday gospels of Lent, this series is a journey towards healing. Each week, we will discuss one virtue needed on this path to healing and resurrection. And we'll discover that it's not the removal of problems that we really need; rather it's the presence of God within those problems that brings healing.
