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 come wearing the clothing in which you feel most comfortable in. Generally speaking, our congregation’s dress is more formal during Choral Communion and less so during our Contemporary service. Those serving in worship during the Choral service wear vestments, or the traditional clothes of our Anglican heritage.
 

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. The 7:45 service follows the liturgy of the 1928 Prayer Book, which is he most traditional form in use today. The 9:15 service generally uses the Rite I liturgy of the 1979 Prayer Book, which retains the ceremonial feel of the 1928 yet updates the language. The liturgy of our 11:00 services is an adapted form of the Rite II liturgy. 

Music

Read More

Our Choral service is steeped in the riches of the English choral tradition, and its corporate praise is based in the 1982 Episcopal Hymnal. Our Contemporary worship is in the folk-Americana style, and draws from sources old and new.

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

Read More

Our hospitality time takes place at 10:30, between our Choral and Contemporary Communion services. 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 during both the 9:15 and 11:00 services. 

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 9:15 and 11:00 services. 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.
