In April 2010, Northminster Reformed Presbyterian Church, located to the north of Atlanta in Forsyth County, began ministering in the English Avenue community – an area also known as “The Bluff”. Initially, these efforts consisted of a Sunday afternoon Bible study conducted on the steps of a derelict church building – St. Mark’s – which is in the heart of the Bluff at the corner of James P. Brawley Drive and Cameron M. Alexander Blvd. after two and a half years of ministry there, it was decided to transition to worship services. Starting in December 2012, this ministry, known as Atlanta Presbyterian Fellowship, met for worship at a corner grocery store every Lord’s day afternoon at 5 o’clock. Then from July to November 2013, we gathered at Faith, Hope and Deliverance Temple, located on the edge of the English Avenue district. In December 2013 we moved into the Faithful Friend Church–Vine City, which graciously hosted us for a year and a half. In June 2015, we were finally able to rent our own facility, one side of a duplex, located at 472 Paines Avenue NW, SUITE B, Atlanta, Georgia 30318. Sunday School starts at 4:45 and the worship service at 5:30 pm.
