Everyone is welcome at West End! We seek to be the loving light of Christ in Nashville and beyond. We gather as the people of God with a wide range of religious backgrounds, education levels, political and theological perspectives, and we value that diversity. We welcome and celebrate the gifts God has given to all without regard to gender, race, sexual orientation, economic or family status, ethnicity, or mental or physical ability. We believe God loves everyone unconditionally!
Our worship is traditional in nature, featuring our beautiful pipe organ, choir and includes preaching, prayer – both spoken and silent – and the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion on regular occasions.
West End follows the traditional church calendar for the seasons of the Christian year, often reflected in the themes of the services, the readings and music. The colors of the paraments (linens on the tables, lectern and pulpit) also reflect those seasons. A nursery is provided for any child 5 years old or younger, but all children are welcome in worship. The services can also be heard in Bishop’s Parlor if parents prefer.
