Attended service January 24, 2016 during Missions Week. Excellent sermon, congregation very welcoming. Being a Baptist/Presbyterian I felt right at home with the hymns, communion and service. This church is certainly not dead and there was a special feel to be modern while at the same time remaining biblical and maintaining reverence and tradition inside this historic building. Pleasantly surprised... More

Historic church with boxes with chairs instead of rows of pews. Cemetery next to church. Informative plaques on walls.

Fresh and beautiful! Still conveys the historical feel, but best of all, it retains the feeling of a place of worship, not a tourist haven.

Beautiful historic church and well-worth a few minutes of time to visit. We were with our walking tour group so our guide provided information we would not have otherwise known. Such as pew #43 is where George Washington visited. Step in and see the beauty of the wood and stained glass.

Lovely Angelican church with pew boxes such as you would see in the old churches of Boston. Lovely stained glass panels. Cemetery has many notable Charlestonians buried there. On the corner of Meeting street and Broad, the four corners of law, the church being ecclesiastical.

Such history in this working church. The pews are actually box seats. We got to sit where George Washington sat when he visited! Beautiful place!

...this is a must visit! Happened upon it by chance just as a service was being let out. Ducked inside for a quick sneak peak. Would love to attend a service here! The churchyard is also beautiful and includes some incredible old headstones. Take some time to explore this old beauty!
