Upbeat Contemporary Worship

As a 1001 new worshiping community, we are part of a movement happening in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Across the PC(USA), God is raising up leaders in churches and presbyteries who are creating new worshiping communities. We are taking on new and varied forms of church for our changing culture. Primarily we are seeking to make and form new disciples of Jesus Christ, to change and transform our community and the world.

Join Our Community

Worship Band

You’ll find that our worship service will enrich not only your week, but your life as well. The worship band includes:

  • Aaron Price—Keyboard
  • Wilson Hawes—Electric Bass
  • Kent Smith—Guitar
  • James Lewis—Vocals

Contemporary Fellowship

The Community on Haywood is a very open fellowship, and we strive to create an environment that is comfortable and welcoming to all categories of people. Rather than a monologue sermon, we utilize meditations that involve open discussions and interaction with the people.

Drama & Media

During our time of worship, we forgo the traditional lecture style sermon for a diverse mix of music, video, open discussion and various other forms of media. You may witness skits and formal drama in addition to fellowship and live music. Our use of all forms of media to communicate in story and metaphor reflects Jesus’ use of story and parable in the first century. Paul’s ability to engage his culture and use its latest media, from writing to roads, fits with our digital technology’s present place in today’s church.

When & Where

The worship services are at 6:00 p.m. on the First, Third and Fifth Wednesdays of every month, following the Fellowship Supper. Everything takes place in the West Asheville Presbyterian Church at 690 Haywood Road, Asheville, North Carolina 28806. During the summer and early fall, weather permitting, we will be meeting on the lawn in front of West Asheville Presbyterian Church.
