Sanctuary exists to help Episcopalians in Upper South Carolina who are
deeply concerned about the direction of The Episcopal Church and the
decisions of our leaders, both at the national level and at the
diocesan level. Since we were founded in 2004, we have offered
strategy and teaching events with noted speakers and theologians,
offered counsel and a listening ear to individuals and groups, and
established communication through a variety of tools, including a
website, email newsletter, small group meetings and meals, and a
Over the years we have learned that the most important gift we can
offer Episcopalians in this diocese who believe the Gospel is the

If you are interested in connecting with other Episcopalians, receiving

discussions, or attending a larger-scale teaching event, make sure you
fill out our contact form.
May God bless you as you seek to remain faithful to Christ's Gospel as
a member of a very troubled, faithless, and divided national
