A new inclusive church in the heart of Birmingham.
We are called to live out the love of Jesus in practical, unexpected, and transforming ways.
We’re a church committed to pursuing God’s radical inclusion. And we’re just beginning.
We believe that the way of Jesus leads us to the wild, radical idea that true spiritual community can be formed based on who is INCLUDED, not by who is EXCLUDED. We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong.
That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.

Come to one of our gatherings.
See our growing team.
