“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The church has been restored and is beautiful. The caretaker is full of information on the churches history and surrounding graveyard. Headstones dating back to the 1700s. You can feel history here.

“If you like cool graveyards, you will love this one.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Historical church with a very awesome graveyard. There was a person on the inside of the church that was happy to tell a little bit of the history of the church. Outside there were old marked graves and wrought iron fences surrounded by trees with hanging moss. The oldest grave was that of Colonel John Barnwell who died in 1724.

“Sunday evenings Come as you are”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Excellent place to attend a contemporary Rite 1ish service. You truly can come as you are. Worshipers are in jeans, shorts, sundresses, suits, dresses, kids with wet hair (straight from the beach or pool). Wonderful priests with sermons that touch the heart and helps begin the week on the right note.

“Sunday in Beaufort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We spent a long weekend in Beaufort. On Sunday we chose to attend St. Helena's Episcopal Church. Beautiful service. Great sermon! After the service we attended the dedication of 2 new headstones in honor of 2 Revolutionary heroes.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Beautiful old church - 301 years old and still in use today!

Stopped in on a Sunday evening - cemetery is open all the time. Full of history, fun and eerie at the same time. Must visit!
