The Arts + Culture Series is a forum for exploring common ground between everyday life and the Church, primarily through performances, talks, and conversations with artists, authors, musicians, cultural critics, and community leaders. The series has an outreach focus, seeking to foster relationships and ongoing dialogue between the Church and the Greater Birmingham community in compelling and accessible ways. Each gathering also typically features high-quality food and drinks.
Matt Schneider is the series curator and host.
