Historic St. Philip's Church will hold its annual Tea Room April 27-May 1, 2020. Stop by 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. for a lowcountry lunch! We're offering our famous okra soup, chicken salad sandwiches, ham biscuits, shrimp salad, and more! Listen to the live music and finish your meal with tea or coffee and a delicious homemade dessert. You'll love our Huguenot Torte! (Here's an insider tip: pick up your dessert as soon as you get seated--before someone else takes the one you had your eye on!)

The Tea Room is a St. Philip’s tradition that was begun in 1952 by the Women’s Auxiliary and directed by Mrs. Carlton "Hattie" Davies. In its first years, the Tea Room was held in the old “Shell Shop,” now known as the Tea Garden, and after some years off, the Tea Room tradition was reintroduced in 2003. Lunch is served daily in the St. Philip’s Parish House and courtyard for one week in the spring. Many volunteers––men, women, and youths––donate their time, talents, and treasures to this project. Proceeds from the Tea Room benefit St. Philip's foreign and home missions, St. Philip's choirs, and youth ministries.

For more information or to reserve a spot for a party of six or more (beginning in April 2020), please contact the church office at (843) 722-7734 or email
