Surp Hovhannes (Armenian: Սուրբ ՅովհաննԷս Եկեղեցի; meaning Saint John) or Voskevaz Church (Armenian: Ոսկեվազ եկեղեցի) is a 7th- to 12th-century basilica located in the village of Voskevaz in the Aragatsotn Province of Armenia.
The church of S. Hovhannes is a large cruciform central plan interior and rectangular exterior plan type basilica. It is missing the drum and dome that once stood above. Two portals lead into the church. Much of the church is void of any decoration.
The structure is currently (as of late 2009) being renovated and parts are being reconstructed.
