Visit Us

 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.

What to Expect

Dress

Read More

You are welcome to wear clothes in which you feel comfortable. Those serving in worship during the Historic Common service wear vestments which are traditional clothing used in worship.
 

Liturgy

Read More

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. 

Music

Read More

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. 

Teaching

Read More

The first half of our worship is devoted to the reading and preaching of Scripture. Our sermons are based on our Scripture readings from the Anglican lectionary. Each sermon tends to be between 18 and 24 minutes long, and our preachers seek to cover contextual background, find application, and reveal the Gospel message that lies at the core of every passage of Scripture.
 

Hospitality Time

Our Coffee and Community time takes place from 10:10 to 10:30, between our Christian Formation time and Historic Common Worship service. All are welcome to share in good food and good company.
 

Nursery Care

Read More

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.

Cathedral Kids

Read More

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. 

Communion

Read More

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.
