One of the most exciting parts of this thrust is the formation of a performance series to take place in the excellent venues within the historic Southside Church just off 5-Points South, including its acoustically and visually magnificent 500-seat Sanctuary, as well as the 200-seat proscenium theatre Foster Auditorium, large dining/meeting facility (Drennen Hall), an “old-school”-styled Gymnasium, a medium-sized conference room (Heritage Room), and a variety of large spaces for rehearsals and other supportive events. The Southside Centre for the Arts and Humanities, a program of Southside Baptist Church of Birmingham, Alabama, exists to support and promote a variety of artistic and educational goals.
