An Adventure in Faith and Fellowship in Christ
Welcome to Church of the Advent! We are a small congregation – lively, active, and diverse, LGBT friends welcome. We are welcoming, affirming, and intentionally engaged with and in our neighborhood. We have joined with other congregations in Walnut Hills to form a Faith Alliance whose main objective is to support children and their families in Walnut Hills. We have an OPEN DOOR MINISTRY that serves those in need of a safe place to get warm, charge a phone, grab a cup of coffee, get some groceries, and a payee program available for those who need help in that area. We raised around $1300 by walking in the Hunger Walk 2019 Cincinnati (Freestore Food Bank). November 3rd was the Sunday we had to “Change our Clocks” back an hour. We decided to have a little fun with a special offering of our spare “change” as an offering for Open Door Ministries (3rd Picture below).
We hope you’ll spend a few Sundays with us and get to know us. Until then – God Bless you and Keep you!
Worship at Advent:
Sunday Services are at 8 am and 10 am. There is always coffee to be had at 9 am and after the 10 am service when we have coffee hour. Come in and get to know us. We are a unique congregation.

Environmental issues – We’re working on being “Green”.
Old buildings can be environmentally unfriendly when it comes to wasting energy. It can also be a drain on finances. We are committed to being a “Green Congregation”. We are just one of the few Episcopal Churches that have been certified by Ohio Energy Power and Light. We are committed to continue finding ways to make our building even more environmentally friendly. Keep us in your prayers!
