What To See & Do

Cathedral Church of the Advent

Historic Site in Birmingham

The 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 has offered a Lenten Preaching series every weekday during Lent for over one hundred years, featuring preachers from around the country and around the world; and our concurrent Episcopal Church Women’s Lenten Lunches program serves thousands of meals to raise money for Outreach and Missions.
