The Cathedral Church of the Advent strives to serve God in Jesus Christ by reaching out from the center of the Birmingham community through evangelism and mission. Our 3,700-member congregation comprises one of the largest Episcopal parishes in the United States, and the church serves as the cathedral for the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama. The Advent offers a music program to the parishioners of the Cathedral Church, to the parishes of the Diocese of Alabama and to the community-at-large seeking to enable those who participate and those who attend services an opportunity for enriching worship of Almighty God. Those who participate also benefit from a unique experience of learning and fellowship. Part of the music program is an annual series of concerts, serving as an outreach to the community-at-large.
