Allen Chapel T. E. A. M      - "A Foundation Built On Solid Rock"
About Us
In the year 1865, the South Carolina Annual Conference was organized in Charleston, South Carolina.  This conference encompassed the States: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.   In the next year several, new churches were formed in this area.  Among the new charges organized in 1869 was Allen AME Church in Burton, South Carolina.  The best records available show that the pastor of the newly organized church was Reverend Chaiser.

Allen Chapel A.M.E Church is a family oriented church with strong family attachments to past generations.  Many of the present members are descendants of the early pioneers of this church.  Many of these members were presented to the Lord as children, nurtured in the bosom of the love of God, and are still seeking God’s blessing each week.

Allen Chapel has been a sister church and a member of the Beaufort Circuit with Grace A.M.E Church of Beaufort, S.C with one pastor serving both churches. The Reverend Henry Blake served as the first pastor of Allen Chapel AME Station Church.

A test of faith occurred when in, the year of 1996, the church was partially destroyed by fire.  Immediately after the fire, Reverend Richard Allen and the Horsepond Baptist Church open their doors for our congregation to continue worship service.  Worship services were held at Horsepond Baptist Church, future worship services were held at Shanklin Elementary School.

Here we are today, under the leadership and guidance of Reverend Dr. Bettye Walker Broomfield. She continues to serve the community and openly show the meaning of our motto.  “This is the Church that God Built …. And upon this rock I build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  Matthew 16:18.
