A House of Prayer for All People

St. Stephen’s was founded in 1822 as a racially integrated congregation that strives to be a “house of prayer for all people” by living into the commandment to love your neighbor as yourself. Mindful of our roots, we carry forward this mission of inclusivity and radical welcome in 21st century Charleston and beyond. Emblematic of our values is the crooked cross atop our church, blown aslant but not down by Hurricane Hugo and now our symbol that amid the gales of the world we stand strong with love for all.

We’re Here For You

Our congregation believes strongly in partnering with justice-minded organizations and with groups and people who offer empowerment, care and dignity as well as comfort and safety to vulnerable individuals and families in our community.

We invite you to invest in our work by making a pledge.

We will welcome you when you come to be with us — and we will search for you in Charleston, the Lowcountry and wherever you are….because that is what Jesus is doing.
