Overview

Founded in 1733 at a location determined by General James Oglethorpe as part of the original Savannah settlement, the present building is the third one constructed (the previous two having burned down). A one-story church with a raised basement, it features an impressive Greek Ionic portico. Its third rector, the Reverend John Wesley, published the first English Hymnal in America in 1737. This was also the parish home of Juliette Gordon Low who founded the Girl Scouts in 1912. With two organs from England as part of its impressive musical program, the church offers concerts, orchestral performances, hand bells, and choirs which are often comprised of singers from citywide churches. Visitors are welcome to tour the beautiful church or attend services. - Natasha Lawrence
