The Anglican Diocese of South Carolina has just over 18,000 baptized members spread across the eastern and coastal portion of the state.

Based in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, the Diocese counts among its members several of the oldest, operating churches in the nation. We are a member diocese of The Anglican Church in North America.

We continue as faithful Anglicans under the leadership of The Rt Revd Chip Edgar, the Bishop of the Diocese. Our motto is “Behold, I make all things new.” Our continuing mission is, “To respond to the Great Commission by so presenting Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit that all may come to know Him as Savior and follow Him as Lord in the fellowship of His Church.”
