Welcome to Woodland.
Celebrating 160 years

Robust Love.



We are an open, inclusive community of faith that welcomes all into the life and leadership of the church regardless of ethnicity, social status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.



We are formed by the insights of the Bible (as messy and problematic as it can be), but also welcome perspectives from our relationships with others and the spiritual traditions they represent.

We are a community that supports one another through life’s ups and downs and everything in between, as we encourage one another in the pursuit of love, justice and peace along the way.

Inviting Community.

Sunday Services

Every Sunday at 11am, Woodland gathers for worship in our century-old Sanctuary. Our worship could be considered traditional in style and progressive in content. Our preachers vary from week to week. Someone similar to you probably preaches at Woodland!


There’s plenty of parking around the church, so don’t worry! There’s street parking on the Gartland St. side of our building. We also have a small lot that can be accessed from the alley on Gartland St.

What to Wear

Whatever you'd like -- we can't tell you how to dress!


Your kids are also welcome! During the service, we have an informal time for kids of all ages downstairs. There is nursery care also available for infants and toddlers starting at 10:30am.

Open Arms.

We seek to follow Christ into our community where we grow, learn, and listen to our neighbors. We invite you to take part in our activities, programs, and community events, no matter who you are or what you believe.

Ready to celebrate?

Regardless if you're skeptical of Christianity or wholly convinced, we celebrate our journeys as a community. We've been in Nashville for 160 years. Evolving, changing, adapting is part of our DNA.

Woodland Presbyterian Church is a member congregation of More Light Presbyterians, a network of Presbyterians committed to LGBTQ+ equality. At Woodland, we strive to welcome people of all races, socio-economic status, and religious backgrounds. All are welcome!
