Our Goose Creek Chapel is located in Berkeley County in what was once referred to as St. James Goose Creek Parish.

In 1886 the largest landowner was Crowfield, a rice plantation which was built as early as 1701 and featured large, formal garden between 1729 and 1742. A number of tall oaks from the mile long avenue still stand.

We're very proud of our modern facility which serves not only as a gathering place for the families we serve, but also for community groups as well.
