The People of the Episcopal Church of the Messiah welcome you.  We are only a few years old* and are the only Episcopal Church in Myrtle Beach.  Our commitment is to build up a community of faith committed to loving God and sharing that blessing.

We gather each Sunday around the Lord’s Table to be equipped for service through the sharing of Christ’s body and blood.  All baptized Christians are welcome to receive the grace of Holy Communion at the Messiah’s altar.  Our prayer is one we often sing:

Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands that holy things have taken.” [Hymn 312]

On Sunday mornings you will find us at 10:00 am sharing the campus of St. Philip Lutheran Church at 6200 North Kings Highway.  Our worship is in the north end of the building in Wingard Hall. We share a lot with our Lutheran friends. You’ll find a worship nursery, church school opportunities and a coffee hour following worship which feels more like brunch!

Our Vicar is the Rev. Dr. Randy Ferebee and he may be reached at

Mail may be sent to us at Box 70367, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29572.

Our telephone number is (843) 999-0888. It is an internet-based system which delivers your message and offers general information.

Are you an Episcopalian who has been attending a disassociated church in the last few years?  Are you considering resuming your journey of faith in the Episcopal Church?  We invite you to see this FAQ [Frequently Asked Questions] about your return: .  This will connect you to a page on our diocesan website.  If you have more questions or would like to have a conversation in person, please drop us a confidential email at or call us at (843)999-0888. We truly look forward to talking with you.  If you are a person of faith who is considering the Episcopal Church, we welcome your contact too.

If you are a member of a disassociated church (often using the name “Anglican” in some form) and feel you must continue your walk apart from us, we wish you Godspeed.  May your  journey be blessed.


The Church of the Messiah is an intentionally inclusive community called to love the Lord

and to serve God’s world in a spirit of reconciliation, hope, and healing.


The Church of the Messiah practices following Jesus to experience for ourselves

and share with others God’s love by serving the world in His name.

* We were actually founded in the 1930s and our first church building was at 3000 North Kings Highway.  We were re-established in 2013.  See our History section for more information.

Lord God, you call your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown; give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us, and your love supporting us; to the glory of your name. Amen.
