The Struggle is Real.
Love Wins.

The Abbey is an Episcopal Church in the Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham, AL. We believe that Jesus calls us to be radical in our hospitality and generosity and to seek and serve Christ in all people. We observe that the Holy Spirit is most active outside the walls of traditional church institutions. We would love to host you at worship on Sundays at 4:00 p.m.

We invite you to...

  • Seek and find God on the margins
  • Be part of a holy community, faithfully and imperfectly, following Jesus
  • Be transformed through relationships with God and neighbor
  • Serve and to be served
  • Find strength and solace at the Lord’s Table
  • Believe that LOVE WINS.


We host a worship service on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. in the downstairs area of Zion Spring Baptist Church. The church is located at 528 41st St. N, Birmingham, AL 35222 (North Avondale). You can also join us virtually via Zoom. Contact us at theabbeyepiscopal@gmail.com for more information.
