Dorchester Presbyterian Church is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and a member of Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery, the regional governing body for PCUSA churches and ministers in the area between McClellanville, Hilton Head Island, Barnwell, Orangeburg, and Santee. In an effort to welcome newcomers to our tradition, the PCUSA has developed a helpful introduction to who we are and what we do; it's called Presbyterian 101.

Please call the church office at 843-871-3572 if you have any questions.  We invite you to join us any Sunday for Sunday School at 9:00 am and Worship at 10:15 am.
