Purchasing Tickets

Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased online, at each house or at Independent Presbyterian Church during tour hours in December 2019. In the past, 100% of ticket sales go to the following local ministries:

 

  • Since 1923, Independent Presbyterian Church has operated the Children’s Fresh Air Farm to promote hope and opportunity through partnerships with children, families, and the community by offering quality programming rooted in the love of Christ. Nearly 100 years later, we continue to minister to children from Birmingham through the Christian-focused Summer Learning Program and LIFT OFF to Learning, a science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) program.

  • The downtown shelter works with homeless women and their children to help them find hope, to seek opportunity, and to grow spiritually, thereby achieving their full potential. IPC volunteers serve dinners and spend the night at the shelter.

  • STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading) works with Birmingham City Schools to identify second graders who are reading below grade level. Volunteer tutors work with these students one-on-one to improve reading skills and self esteem.

Please Note: We regret there is limited disabled access at the private homes.
