What are your regular worship times?

We worship at 8:15 a.m. in the Chapel each Sunday morning, including the celebration of Holy Communion. Then, following our Sunday school hour (9:15-10:15 a.m.), we gather for worship in the Sanctuary at 10:30 a.m.

In addition, the Golden Triangle Fellowship worships each week in the Chapel at 10:15 a.m., bringing together individuals and families from Burma and Thailand, former refugees who have been resettled in Nashville over the past few years. This service is translated into three languages.

Do you have classes for visitors and new members?

Yes, Welcome to Belmont is a one-session information class about the mission and ministries of Belmont, and is held on the last Sunday of each month from 9:15–10:15 a.m. Also, A Disciple’s Path is a six-session series about discipleship in the United Methodist Church, and is scheduled a few times each year.

How can I become a member of Belmont United Methodist Church?

Ken Edwards ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to schedule an appointment so that we can discuss membership and the ways in which you can become involved in the life and mission of the church. After your questions have been answered and the membership vows and form have been reviewed, we will select a Sunday worship time for you to join that is convenient for you and your family.

What are the steps for having our child baptized, or for being baptized as a youth or adult?

First, we ask that you contact Rev. Ken Edwards or another staff member to make an appointment to talk about the meaning and significance of baptism in The United Methodist Church. At that time we will also review the order of worship that we use. Once your questions are answered, a Sunday may be scheduled for the baptism.

Do you have to be a member to receive Holy Communion?

No. In the United Methodist Church, we believe in an open table for communion where all are welcome. We believe that the sacrament of Holy Communion is an act of God’s grace extended to everyone.

How can I set up a time to meet one of the pastors?

You may contact any of the pastoral staff by email or phone. Email addresses and biographic information can be found on our Staff web page.

We provide childcare on Sunday mornings beginning at 8:00 a.m. for children ages 6 weeks-two years.

What is the best place to park near the church?

Parking is available around the church building and on the nearby streets during the week and on Sundays. We do have limited parking in the lot between our Community Center and main building (off of 20th Ave. So.). Also, on Sundays you may park at the Post Office and Village Cleaners on Acklen and across from the church. Many of our members park across 21st and use the pedestrian crosswalks in the area as well. Although parking can be challenging at times, most people find a space in near proximity to the church.  Handicap accessible spaces can be found in front of the church as well as in the lot between the Community Center and main building.

Is there a main entrance to your building?

On Sundays, most main doors to the buildings are open. During the week, our main entrance can be found off the parking lot between the Community Center and Main Building (turn onto 20th off of Acklen, then turn right into our small parking lot). The doors on Acklen Avenue are not unlocked during the week.
