Bible Study
at the Advent

Many faithful and gifted teachers lead mid-week Bible study groups, at the Advent (downtown Birmingham), Cranmer House (Homewood), and at other area locations. These groups meet for an hour or two on a weekly or biweekly basis to study Scripture, pray together, and form bonds of Christian friendship. 


These groups are open to all at any time. At the Advent, we call these our “drop in” studies. Join us!
