Interesting in that original church plan has been pretty much kept and it is very much a 18th century Episcopal Church. Liturgically appears very conservative. Would like to return for Sunday service but even as a Episcopalian, I think I would rather go to Mother Emmanuel AME Church and probably will the next visit.

... and so did General Robert E. Lee, when he was passing through Charleston - both in Pew 43, to be exact. An interesting detail on the lectern was the inclusion of a Cross with a Star of David, showing the religious diversity of the City of Charleston!

While dividing my time between two states I worshipped at St. Michael's Church. It is a caring and spiritual body of believers. The church is a beautiful and historic setting.

Great old church, love the history! The architecture is spectacular for the time frame that it was built. This is the second location for this church.

Two very nice ladies at a nearby (closed) church sent us to St. Michael's. It is a beautiful historic church definitely worth a visit.

We did a self guided tour walking around Charleston (got it off AAA website) and this was a must stop for us because of the history. Charleston is such a beautiful, quaint historical town that throws you back in time. Get lost in the many homes with beautiful gardens, gated entrances and wooden porches. Service was going on when we... More

It was a great 10 minute stop along the way. An old church that well worth the stop. Attached is a cemetery with 2 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence buried there.

We were in Charleston at Christmas time and walked to St. Michaels Church to see it decorated for Christmas. It is a beautiful Church and the doors are open for visitors much of the time during the Christmas season. It is well worth your time even if you don't attend on of the services.
