About St. Martin's-In-The-Fields Episcopal Church
St. Martin’s-in-the-Fields is a mid-sized Episcopal parish within the Diocese of Upper South Carolina. Located in Forest Acres, a suburb of Columbia, our campus is just off of Forest Drive, across the street from Crayton Middle School.
Founded in 1950, St. Martin’s is a liturgically-grounded parish whose members strive to live their lives through a deep understanding of the Anglican ideal of the via media, or the middle way. Here you will find young and old worshiping with serious intent in a parish atmosphere that is genuine, relaxed and come-as-you-are.
On our campus, you will discover people with big hearts and spirits: generous with their gifts and always stretching to understand what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. We find comfort in our deep loyalty to the Episcopal Church with its rich liturgy and prayer life. And we embrace the challenges of practicing our faith in a world too often engaged in cynicism and polarization. Through God’s grace and the faithfulness of those who came before us, we continue to build a faith community that began 65 years ago. Come join us in sharing the Good News that Christ is alive and there’s love enough to go around. All are welcome!
