Who We Are

South Highland Presbyterian Church is a dynamic, welcoming, 127-year-old congregation located on the "southside" of Birmingham, Alabama. People from all areas of the city and its suburbs come to this center of Christian life for a community of worship, study, belonging, renewal, growth, and outreach. Our mission is "to proclaim Jesus Christ here and abroad; to minister to the community in tangible expressions of the love of God through worship, witness, service and fellowship; and to provide opportunities for spiritual growth."


South Highland is:

- A Presbyterian Church rooted in the Reformed faith tradition, governed by the Session (Elders) and Deacons, with a commitment to serving with the passion of Christ.

- A worshipping congregation eagerly seeking to bring glory to God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, through an emphasis on the teachings of Scripture and the practice of prayer.

- A mission-minded church focused on proclaiming the Gospel of Christ and living out the call to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community and in communities worldwide.

- A living extension of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and a participant in its growth, purpose, and endurance.

- A hospitable community of believers committed to the support, personal growth, and care of one another.
