People come to Charleston for many reasons. They come for the history, the beauty, and the opportunities provided by an exciting 21st century southeastern city. If you’re new to the area or are simply looking for a place where you can find community and engage Christianity, we would love to have you join us for Sunday worship at the Cathedral.
Classic Anglican Worship
Celebrated in the traditional language of the 1928 Prayer Book, this service is quiet, simple, and lit by the rising sun.
Historic Common Worship
This ancient and accessible service is built on the liturgy of the Anglican Church in North America and incorporates elements of both folk and choral music.
The Cathedral sits in the Heart of Charleston at 126 Coming Street, Charleston, SC 29403

Parking passes are available to congregants for use of our main lot during the week. Click below to apply for a parking pass, whether you are a congregant, a diocesan employee, or a lease-holder.
What to Expect
Our services are rooted in the rhythm of our historic Anglican liturgy. All who are gathered are invited to join in the reenactment of the story of the gospel through song, prayer, scripture, and sacrament. Our liturgy is drawn from the Book of Common Prayer, the worldwide source of Anglican worship.
Our Classic Anglican service is a “said” communion and is done without any music. Our Historic Common service draws from the riches of historic church music and incorporates band, organ, and choir on most Sundays.
At the Cathedral, we love children and seek to create an environment that is welcome, safe, and fun. We offer nursery care for children ages 0-3 starting at 9:00 for our Christian Formation time until after the 10:30 service.
We encourage families to worship together on Sundays. But we know the sermon can be a challenging time for kids (and their parents!). So children ages 4-8 are invited to a time of teaching and fun called Cathedral Kids during the sermon at the 10:30 service. Kids return to their parents before our Communion liturgy.
The second half of our worship is centered around the celebration of Holy Communion. All baptized Christians are welcome to receive God’s gifts of bread and wine at the table. Those exploring Christianity are welcome in our services and are invited to come forward at Communion and cross their arms over their chest to receive a blessing from one of our leaders.
