The Episcopal Church on Edisto worships in the historic sanctuary of New First Missionary Baptist Church.
Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry spoke to diocesan youth at the first “Bishop’s Lock-in” of the Diocese.
After the August 2017 Supreme Court ruling, we began planning for the reunification of the Diocese and the reintegration of the 29 returning congregations. This task has proven to be difficult because the legal landscape continues to shift. Once the South Carolina Supreme Court decision is implemented, we look forward to the hard work of the restoration and reconciliation of our entire diocese. Our next bishop will need to know on the front end that this work will not be for the faint of heart, but it is the ministry God has given us.
We envision a diocese of 55 or more congregations, a flourishing camp and conference center (St. Christopher) and a deep connection and abiding loyalty to the Episcopal Church that goes back to 1785, as we move forward on a path of mercy, compassion, and proclamation.
