Nashville is blessed with an abundance of affirming churches and synagogues. Within these communities of faith, you will find Baptist (yes, I said Baptist!) Methodist, Presbyterian, Jewish, Unitarian, United Church of Christ, and many others.

Some are considered mainly GLBT communities, and others are considered mainline churches who accept and affirm the GLBT community. Some will have contemporary praise and worship, and others will have more traditional worship.

Regardless of what church or synagogue is a good fit for you, you’ve got plenty to choose from! So get out there and see what you can find!  The following is a list of Middle Tennessee churches and synagogues in which you can visit and feel accepted along with their websites and service times.
