Asian Indian Christian community
The Crestwood/Webster Groves area has a growing Asian Indian community. Many in that community are Christian and members of the Church of South India. The community has been gathering at various churches in the area, and at Eden Theological Seminary. Beginning in April of 2015, Advent has invited them to meet here, as the CSI is a member Church of the Anglican Communion. The community will gather monthly on a Saturday afternoon for a meal and fellowship, and quarterly for worship in their own language. Many may choose to join Advent for Sunday worship.
