A Church Without Walls
What are we all about at The Church at Southside? In a word: Jesus. More specifically, we believe God has purposely placed us near the heart of the city of Birmingham to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those close by.
Every Story Matters
The Church isn’t somewhere we go; it’s something we are. And we are not your typical church. We meet outdoors every Sunday, rain or shine, and share a meal and the Gospel in a parking lot in downtown Birmingham. That may sound strange to you. We get it; it was foreign to us too when we began this part of the journey of our church. But God put a group of people on our hearts that wouldn’t come to us. So we went to them.
Some of our people have grown up in a typical church setting. Others have never set foot in a church building. On any given Sunday, you’ll find a diverse mix of folks in many aspects. But we have found that no matter our differences, our great hope is that in Christ, there is unity. Because of Him, we can worship together. Everyone is welcome. Everyone’s story matters. And everyone has a seat at the table.
Since March 2017
Since early 2017, we have partnered with the Community Food Bank of Alabama. Through this relationship, we are able to provide weekly meals, bags of groceries, and toiletry items to those we meet in need as we strive to be a welcoming community where everyone is welcome at the table.
