John 1:41

Birmingham, Alabama

St. Andrews Episcopal Church first began as a mission of the Church of the Advent in 1902, and was recognized as a parish by the Diocese in 1906. In 1913, three days before Easter, the church building was destroyed by a tornado. The cornerstone for a new church, at its present location, was laid on November 30, 1913. The building was finished and consecrated on All Hallow’s Eve in 1920.

The picturesque brownstone church continues to grace the corner of 11th Avenue and 12th Street South.
