I go to a church in Homer, New York... 'First Baptist Church of Homer'. Recently the last two years or so, we took a deep look at who Jesus really was, and like you say, we try to act like Christ, not what people think Christians should be. Sure, some people will look at you funny... They look at me funny too, but Pastor Bob (Kleecan) is the nicest guy I have ever met, and if you say 'Hi' he'll shake your hand and smile...for real. ~Mike

New Jersey, Teterboro. North Jersey Vineyard www.northjerseyvineyard.org I have been going to njv for 2 years and though no one else looks like me, I have been accepted and encouraged to be just the way I am. It started out with me going every Sunday, but it is so good there, I go to a life group every night and volunteer regularly. There are three sermons in the morning 9:00, 10:35, 12:15. The worship is really powerful and ranges from acoustic guitar to rocked out versions of hymns and worship music. The sermons are easy to follow and apply to real life. The Vineyard church was started by hippies, because they were rejected by the churches of their day. There aren"t hippies anymore, but they have me and anyone else who loves Jesus.New Jersey, Woodland Park (formerly known as West Paterson) Kings Gate Church This is a church of true freedom. The current time it starts is 10:00 for English, and 1:00 for Spanish. The worship time is nice and long, there is dancing, flagging, shouting, all forms of worship are welcome. Pastors David and Denise Greco are very loving and care about each individual who walks through the doors. The messages are encouraging and speak life. This is a church where your relationship with Jesus is important. Come and be loved.

a prayergroup which centers on bringing new souls into the fold who are on the edge, there is no group for the cutting edge in san francisco..this will be it..are you: unique, interesting, industrial, gothic, atheist, lost, oppressed, possessed, agnostic, disbelieving, fallen, in a void or think religion messed this whole world up...."the letter kills the SPIRIT gives life"... be raw, be real, be you..but be pure in heart.....the devil is a liar..and has used the darkness and the light to confound the truth about christ: "we battle not against flesh and blood but against principalities in high places". it is not how we dress or look or how little or much we wear, but who we are inside....sometimes in fact..our attire can be used for purposes the church/world cannot see...we will meet for a prayer meeting/reading/hang out:: on a night during the week,
once we have a core group we can have some fun outings at the beach and bbqs and clubs. seriously waiting for some hardcores to become saved..in deep desire of brilliant souls and some brilliant music, with gut and edge, electronic, underground, driving, danceable, melodic, emotional, deep and ECCENTRIC.

I know this first hand as this is Rick from The Last Dance, and I have worked there when not on tour for over 9 years now. Just last weekend I played a show in Mexico on a Saturday night, and was held up at the border so I was forced to drive straight to the church after the show instead of going home, showing up there in my goth style stage clothes, all the make-up, crazy hair, etc...and they only thought it was cool...calling me silly for staying up all night to get there, but were appreciative..
For the record The Last Dance is not a Christian band by definition, we are just a band who plays music from what is real to us...Bethany respects that and has allowed us to record all of our albums there as well.
It is a Christian church, not a goth church, with an emphasis on openness, love and worship through music. the website is http://bethanyonline.net
cheers.. Rick of The Last Dance. (Thank you Rick, for that testimony of Bethany Church) C.G. com

YWAM ministries in Garden Valley (Tyler
area) Texas, Family night is held
on Twin Oaks Ranch, where we are based, each Sunday night at 6PM. It is open to all,
although most of the people there are usually either staff, or students, who live on the ranch. (It's NOT a farm. We're not farmers. We're missionaries) it's just a couple of miles off I20 exit 248, near Tyler TX.
Most of us aren't Goths, but we welcome anybody who loves the Lord (Or is just curious about him) no matter what they look like. We are common people, preps, punks, skaters, phreaks, and yes, a few Goths here and there, but I find that almost everybody here judges people on a totally personal basis, not with personal bias. For more information, go to www.YWAMTyler.org (there're directions there.) ~God bless, Justus~

I'm probably the most church-a-phobic person I know. I've had some close brushes with being burnt at the stake by a bunch of crazy hypo-christians. My friend, who has been christian goth for man years, worked on me for about 6 months and finally got me to go to her church with her. It's called Gateway Community Church. I've never been to a church like it. My friend shows up in full goth gear (sometimes including vampire fangs) and no one even bats an eyelash. It's quite astounding. The services are wonderful and well-thought out. Everything is well-researched and based on both history and the Bible. If you live in the Austin, TX area and have been scared off or chased out by a church, this is THE place to go. After a year of attending services periodically, God called me and I recently made my confession of faith in Christ.... and it's ALL Gateway's fault! LOL Please check it out, even if you're not sure about the whole "God" thing... the services are valuable to people of all spiritual inclinations (including pagan, buddhist, jewish, etc.). Their philosophy is: "No perfect people allowed." You can view their website and listen to past messages at: http://www.gatewaychurch.com/ By the way, their music is GREAT... it's all christian rock and the music director is awesome. As a former fervent anti-christian, it speaks volumes that I have found a church that has brought me back to God. Check it out!
I go to St Laurence Catholic Church in Houston Texas. The Lifeteen Mass is at 5:00 pm on Sunday. It is
mostly teens that go there, it is always
packed. We accept everyone...no one is turned away. The music is awesome (electric guitars, drums, and a great choir) and I would love to have
you join us. The people are very friendly and no matter what the stereotype is, our Father Drew has seen it, and loves us for it.

Church that IS gothic Friendly: Cielo Vista Church, El Paso, TEXAS
I attend Vineyard Christian
and I can say we've got every walk and class of people in my church that there
is. Punkers to Emo, Rocker metalheads to Goth, Wealthy upper class to homeless,
I've never felt like I was being judged for being a flamboyant metalhead with strong gothic tendences while attending this church. No one there really cares what you look like but rather whether or not your growing in the Lord and developing a personal relationship with Jesus.
The church is a non-denominational, charismatic church that desires to build a strong personal relationship with Jesus, flow in the anointing of the Holy spirit, Build strong intercessory prayer warriors, and take it out to the world for the glory of God.

Lifelink Church in Lakeland, TN. - "There's no condemning here and the worship will rock your socks off. i love it here, and i'd hope to see some more christian goths there!" ~ Bethany [/.silver.\] also see: www.visibleschool.com
The Vineyard Church in Chattanooga, TN is goth friendly. there are goth & hardcore groups there as well as organics (hippies) & other groups...it's eclectic! ~dale~
The church that I go to is Heartsong United Methodist Church Bartlett, Tennessee. It is, in my opinion, the best church in the world. The pastor describes us as a bunch of "knotheads, potheads, hotheads, and sot...in recovery" I love it. just thought you'd like to know...
Faith Community Church in
Franklin, TN is a very open and accepting group of
Christians. Back when I was still dressing goth they let me
become the worship leader! Poet shirts and all.... Anyway, we teach solid Bible, have a great community/family feel and have a great band
that honestly worships God and doesn't try to put on a show. If you are looking for authenticity and acceptance come check us out.

goth-friendly church o' mine: Trinity Chapel www.trinitychapel.com
It's a really awesome church. We have all kinds of people that come there and it's a really on-fire church. Come and you shall enjoy.
I go to the People's Church, in Nashville, Tennessee. http://www.thepeopleschurch.org
It's goth friendly. There are a lot of teens there, from the preppier people to emo to hippie to goth. A lot of the youth leaders are drawn to different subcultures, and they tend to have respect, not "Eeew!" for the gothier people. They look past the clothing at people's hearts.
I go to Bethel World Outreach Center in Brentwood, TN on the corner of Old Hickory and Granny White Pike (it is the BIG
white one on the corner) which is goth friendly. Sunday services start at 8:15 AM, 10:00
Am, and 11:45 AM respectively, Saturday night service starts at around 7 I think (though I
am not sure) and RUSH
(our high school youth group) meets on Wednesdays in the Gym.(there are only 2 of us currently,though neither if us are ALL OUT goth, I am tring to
change my style slowly as to not get yelled at by my parents)
My church is Trinity Vineyard in Mid-town Atlanta, GA. not to be confused with Atlanta Vineyard which is already on your list. This is where all the goths, punks, emo, hippies, yuppies (yes even yuppies are welcome!) and anyone who is into Jesus, or looking for Him, come to do it together. We are mostly 20s and 30s with some younger and some older ones for seasoning. Pastor Kris is awesome- very relevant and even challenging. If someone at my church is staring at you, it's probably because they LIKE what you are wearing, or your hair color, or your many or few piercings or body art! We have 4 Sunday services, 9:30am, 11:30am, 6pm and 8pm. The evening services, naturally, are usually when most of the enlightened dark ones show up but there's a good bit of us in the am too. Look it up at trinityvineyard.org or just show up at any of the times above- 1314 Ellsworth Industrial Blvd. Atlanta GA 30318 Holy Savior Batman! "Goth"om's on fire! hee. we are a multi-ethnic church as well .
The Hillside Parishes -Leake St Mary's Church. Visions York
I attend Newnan First United Methodist in Newnan, Georgia. The website is http://www.newnanfumc.org. Iím the only goth there, but I get lots of compliments on what I wear. A lot of the young children donít understand it, but everyone is really nice and cool with me. The services are liturgical, and the music is beautiful. We have an organ and excellent choirs that sing amazing, sometimes haunting, classical music. I am not sure what the youth program is like because I am in an adult Sunday School class, but I do know the lady who is the main youth leader. She is wicked sweet and accepting. Youíll stand out, but nobody minds. They will appreciate you as you are, and it wonít matter that you arenít like them.
I attend His Hands in Woodstock, GA http://www.hishandschurch.com/ This church is very welcoming, is non-denominational, has no hierarchy, and has made accepting and embracing believers on a come-as-you-are basis in Christ's love. They have an awesome band, with members dressed in full punk, indie, etc. attire, tattooed, and I see many people from several subcultures, including Goths there. I have come in goth attire, with no issues or stares, jut the love and acceptance His Hands offers. I'd be gald to accompany anyone who wants to try it out. --Raven Silva-Barton Marietta, GA

Hebron Baptist Church, Dacula, Ga www.hebronchurch.org - This is not a "gothic" church but they are open to everyone there. Very supportive environment.
I go to
Calvary of Columbus,
GA and they are an incredible "Come as you
are" type church. super casual and the Pastor is a reformed drug addict like myself,
so he's not preaching to the choir.
I've been going to the Atlanta Vineyard Church www.atlantavineyard.com/youth Norcross (Atlanta) GA It's pretty cool and the people accept the way i am but there aren't any other goths that go there (right now). They show some cool bands - Becoming The Archetype, Joy Electric, they even tried to book Saviour Machine (no chance of that happening though)
First Redeemer Youth Group church in Cumming GA Here in the church website http://www.firstredeemer.org/ ask for Jordan who is in the youth group
Common Ground Christian Church in Indianapolis, IN has been a great home church for me. The church is in the heart of Broad Ripple (the "artsy" part of town) and the congregation is as diverse as the community that surrounds it. The worship is rockin and the pastor does an excellent job.
Blood n Fire Muncie, IN - A wonderful place filled with wonderful, REAL people. Nobody in a suit here, not even the Pastor! Committed to outreach to the poor, the youth, and the nations. Heavy annointing on the prophetic and on personal relationships with each other, Jesus, and God. Church web site: www.bloodnfiremuncie.com
Christ Community Church in Carmel, Indiana. It's a very warm environment. The youth are EXTREMELY accepting. They accept me and we've all become great friends. Also, the pastor is awesome! Sure, there are your conservatives, but there are those everywhere you may go. Trust me, it's awesome.

*The church: Praxis http://www.praxischurch.com
(Tempe, AZ) The church seems to
be much more alternative than others I've been to, and I have certainly never
caught a glare from anyone in the congregation. It's very new and small, very
scripturally based from what I have seen thus far, and there is free food every
week! (I have some friends who find that extremely appealing)
*The ministry: Navigators at Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ) http://www.asu.edu/clubs/navsasu/ I spend most of my time involved here, and we have what I would certainly hope is a very comfortable atmosphere for any goths or anyone who considers themselves to be a little different.

Eagle Brook keeps their teaching biblical and relevant to life today, we like to say our messages are real and relevant. We have three different locations and are looking at a fourth since we are growing so fast, the reason for this growth is not to say we are better but because of the message and the love of God that keeps us on the cutting edge of truth in His word.

We are more laid back goth/rock/hardcore christian church.

ministry. Everyone in my church loves and accepts everyone, no matter what they look
like. I've let everyone in the church, young and OLD (WAY OLD!), know about
my passion to bring in every style to our church and they are all in
agreement. so come and let's grow together in Jesus and have fun doing it.

St.Philip and St.James' Church Chatham, Kent, England www.pipnjims.co.uk
NEW - There is an English-speaking church in Brussels called The Well [www.thewell.be]. Although I have not yet seen a goth there (the church just lost its place of meeting so at temporarily they're splitting up into several weekly Sunday home groups and meet collectively once a month) seeing the way they live, I can say confidently that this is a church where people are accepted just the way they are and not judged for where they come from. This is evident in the fact that many non-Christians attend this church to find out more about Christ and openly admit that they are not (yet) Christian. Their culture is very open and community-oriented. Likewise, I'm sure it will also be a goth-friendly church once we have some who come over :) Between now and 9 july there is a project initiated by The Well called Serve The City [www.servethecity.be], everyone welcome, including goths!

for alternative music such as metal, punk, hardcore, goth, and emo.. Music and
faith plays a big part of our lives and makes us who we are. Our vision is
to break down barriers between God and man, to break down barriers between
Christians and non Christians, and to break down anything that stops us from
knowing Jesus. We are actively involved in the local scene and supporting it.
Like others in the scene, we have something to share as well. Some people like
to talk about social issues of the day or whatever is on their mind and we are
no different. We want to express Jesus in music and the arts about what he has
done; not to push it down people' throats but respecting people and their views
and where they are coming from. We are affilated with London City Church, part
of Elim Pentecostal Church. Things are rocking around Glorious Undead and good
times are ahead of us.. Come and join us if you can.. We meet the every Sunday
at 16:00 hours at the O'Reilly's Pub Pub (opposite McDonalds) in Kentish Town..

B1_Church Without Walls,
Birmingham, West Midlands,
B1 is a community of people committed to journeying with the spiritually interested as they explore Jesus Christ. Weíre here to help others make creative connections to God. Church is often the last place people think of to find a safe place for spiritual questioning. Thatís why weíre engaged in trying to re-imagine a church more accessible for the cultural contexts of our day.
We meet in different places in the city centre. Though we feel committed to the centre, we relate through networks of relationships that span Birmingham. We believe this approach best fits the fluidity of urban life these days. If youíre looking for a church that values friendship, creativity, community, respect, and fun, why not check us out? You can click on the events calendar to find out whatís going on. If youíre interested in exploring the Christian faith, you might like to try Essence or Spirited Exchange. There are loads of ways to get involved in B1. We encourage people to participate and enjoy belonging. The Christian journey is an adventure and we believe in having fun as we work out together what it all means.
at St Edward King and Martyr, Cambridge UK
This is an exciting fortnightly service which seeks to find new ways of making the life of the Church meaningful to people from alternative, and particularly Goth communities. It takes place every alternate Tuesday at 8.30pm in the chancel of St. Edward's Church and all are welcome to attend, whether or not you consider yourself a goth.. The service has been featured on the new Fresh Expressions Church of England website. This service has now been happening for over year and a half and has featured in the news, see here for links to some of the press reports.
There is a detailed article, explaining the background and philosophy of the Goth Eucharist available HERE.
The service lasts about 1 hour and most of the congregation go on to the Calling, a goth evening at the nearby Kambar nightclub. About 25-35 people regularly attend the service.
The service is candlelit with a specially written liturgy and uses a variety of modern rock and as well as classical music. The structure of the service revolves around the baptismal candle and reflects a serious engagement with the depressing and darker sides of our lives before moving towards a position of hope and happiness found in the empathy of the Lord Jesus Christ. While Rev Ramshaws contract has ended with St Eds he is still playing a vital part in the Goth Eucharist.
Details of the music, themes and sermons (where available) can be found via the past service link on the side bar, or from here. Similarly the liturgy used can also be found via the side bar along with page devoted to a selection of the press reports we have come across.

Youth Beta. They are in Bath, England. Beta can be found on MySpace under the name of Youth Beta. There are lots of details on there. It is on Wednesdays from 7 30 to 9 00, in Hay Hill Church. They are are a sort of Youth club (but they don't like to be called that!). Basically, it is run by tenagers for people of about the same age, so we kinda know what people are and aren't going to like. We all meet up, talk, play pool, table football and air hokkey (sorry, I don't think I've spelt that correctly...). We then have a talk about Christianity and after that you can go downstairs and chat, or stay upstairs and talk to the leaders about God and stuff.

NEW~ I go to Jubilee international church in Bondi Junction, Sydney, Australia (www.jubilee.org.au) they are goth friendly in the evening services Ė mainly family in the mornings, but the church has great lighting and atmosphere and is in an old anglican church with gothic architecture. Heaps of Holy Spirit activity, very chilled place where you can get drunk in the spirit easily Ė the best spiritual bar in Sydney...
Mornington Baptist church, 370
Craigie Road, Mt Martha, Victoria AUS. from
Although this is not a 'goth' church, I have certainly found them to be tolerant of those with alternative dressing styles and an overall friendly and open-minded congregation (though I have only attended evening services).
