This beautiful historical church is incredible to visit on any day but especially for a Sunday service which is totally inclusive and prides itself of the free search for truth and meaning infused with a strong social justice engagement.

This is a great area for great history. So much history on this street. I would recommend this area for a few hours just to see and look around. Church, old homes with famous Americans, just so full of things to see. I love Charleston!

The Unitarian Church in Charleston is easily accessible and well worth even a short visit. The cemetery is especially interesting. Don't miss this church during your visit of the many Charleston historical locations.

Nature has taken over throughout which is the Unitarian way. I took a few really great pictures showing the age of the headstones with the moss hanging from nearby trees.

Amazing edifice. The Sankofa memorial in the churchyard is a must see on your Charleston visit. The congregation saved about 100 handmade bricks from the 1774 tower and built a memorial to the unknown enslaved workers who made them. Unique. Significant. Touching.
