Christ Episcopal Church

Christ Episcopal Church Review

This was the first church—then Anglican—established in the Georgia colony in 1733. It is often called "The Mother Church of Georgia." Located on Johnson Square, the centuries-old building with its columns and wrought-iron railings is a pure white sight indeed. Affiliated with the Episcopal Church for 217 years, the Anglican Church challenged ownership in 2006. A precedential legal battle ensued, dividing the congregation and catching national attention. The Episcopal Diocese of Georgia was awarded rightful ownership by the courts in 2009, a ruling that was later reaffirmed by the Georgia Supreme Court.
