St. Paul's Episcopal Church

Visit Augusta’s oldest church congregation and see a performance in its beautiful interior.

St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a charming church with a history that stretches back almost three centuries. Take a private tour of the church’s interior, walk around its intriguing cemetery and see one of the musical performances that regularly take place here.

The church you see today was actually the fourth structure to be constructed on this site. The original building, which dates back to 1750, was constructed as part of Fort Augusta which was built by the British in 1739. Over the intervening years, the building was destroyed and rebuilt several times. The current Georgian Colonial incarnation was completed in 1919. Admire its handsome red brick exterior with its stately white columns.

Inside, colorful stained-glass windows shed light on the altar and the nave. Don’t miss the church’s oldest relic, which is located in the foyer near the southwest entrance. This neoclassical baptismal font, which was shipped here from England in 1751, was recovered from the original church.

Wander the cemetery next to the church and see tombstones dating as far back as the 1780s. A number of well-known Georgians are buried here, including Col. William Few, a signer of the United States Constitution. Try to spot the granite Celtic cross found at the rear of the grounds, which marks the site of the former Fort Augusta. The cannon at its base is believed to have been brought back from England in 1733.

It’s possible to arrange a private tour of the church by contacting the Parish Office. Stop by in autumn or spring to see the St. Paul’s Choir perform Evensong or attend the Tuesday’s Music Live concert series which features music performances ranging from jazz to classical. One of the largest luncheon concert series in the country, this event features 13 free noon hour concerts from September to March each year.

Find St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in the heart of downtown Augusta. Several services are held on Sundays. Free parking is available.

Enjoy your visit to this lovely historic church, one of the city’s most important religious centers.
