I wish I could have gone in but I didn’t research the open times if there are any. The church is so cute from outside. Absolutely love it with the black and pink!

Charming compact colonial style church in easy reach when walking from the cruise port. Set just back from the port area, the church is a real delight to view. My wife and I were in the area so we took the opportunity to pop in to admire the church. Thankfully we were made very welcome.

We just popped in to take a quick look and to our surprise they offered a 5 minute free tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

Excellent guide! Very knowledge on the history of the church and Charleston. You can’t miss the Pink Church! Take a look at the plaques on the wall that list Presidents of the United States of Huguenot descent.

So glad I finally was able to see my 5th g-grandfather's plaque! Valentine Sevier! I so enjoyed the tour guide's story of the French Huguenots. Her story was exactly the same as I had read in my research of the Sevier family.

We enjoyed worshipping with this church, the only active Hugenot congregation in the Western Hemisphere. It was easy to follow the liturgy and sign along with the choir to the hymns. They were very friendly and offer a tour after the service. We saw the names of many historical figures listed in the church because they were of Hugenot heritage. I read a trilogy (historical fiction) about the French Hugenots this year (The Silk House, Linda Chaikin) which added to my interest in seeing this historical church.

Yet another shining example why Charleston is referred to as The Holy City. Beautiful French Huguenot church with interesting exterior and interior. There are plaques of former congregants and Presidents of Huguenot ancestry.

Of all the church buidings we visited on our walking tour, this is the one to which we returned. It houses the only active French Protestant Huguenot congregation in the United States. Its history is very interesting. We attended Sunday morning service, and the congregants were very friendly. The interior and exterior are lovely. Definitely worth a visit, even if you don't go to service.

The French Huguenot Church was a stop on our walking tour of the city. It’s a very pretty Gothic Church. The grounds were declared in the 1600s. The new building is from the 1800s.

This is the Must-See Church in Charleston. Interesting exterior architecture and a simple but beautiful interior. Its history is literally written on its walls.Only one that invited people to enter. Docent was helpful in providing a brief history.

Particularly note the plaque of the number of Presidents of Huguenot descent

Don't forget to leave donations!!!
