I’m New

Welcome to Valleydale Church! Located in north Shelby County near Hoover and Pelham, Alabama, Valleydale Church has been proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ since 1973. Valleydale exists to make Jesus known and to make disciples in our church, community, and world.

We welcome everybody to our church, and we have a place for you! Please browse some questions below we hear often to learn about our church.

Iron City Church is a missional multi-site of Valleydale Church that meets in downtown Birmingham at B&A Warehouse on Sundays at 5:00 pm.

children What activities do you have for my children?
We love children at Valleydale Church! We have Bible-based activities for all ages in fun, exciting environments. Our newborns, toddlers, and preschoolers meet on our first floor in a secured area. Our elementary-aged children (1st-5th grade) enjoy KidStuf, a high energy program that points our children to Christ. And, our students (6th-12th grade) enjoy age and gender-specific Life Groups every Sunday morning with student worship services during the week.
car Where should I park? Do you have a campus map?
We have plenty of parking for everybody. We encourage families with newborns, toddlers, and preschoolers to park near our first floor entrance at the bottom of the hill, which will provide easy access to our areas for our little ones. We encourage everyone else to park near our second floor entrance at the top of the hill, which provides easy access to our worship center and classrooms. We have a campus map that will help you find exactly where to go.
clothes What should I wear?
We encourage our members and guests to wear whatever makes them feel comfortable to fully worship Christ without being a distraction. You’ll see people in suits and others in t-shirts and shorts. Ultimately, we gather together to worship Christ as we are.
music What type of music do you use in worship services?
We embrace many types of music at Valleydale. You’ll hear hymns and contemporary songs with guitars, keyboards, pianos, drums, and sometimes even a string quartet backing up our vocalists. Our worship choir provides great energy to our worship services. Elevation Worship, Passion Band, and All Sons and Daughters are just a few examples of artists we like.

Our worship services are approximately one hour and 15 minutes.
