New City West End came to exist by God’s grace and through the vision of a few people who’ve lived in the West End of St. Louis City for decades. They believed that a local church would be a blessing for their neighborhood.
New City West End is a multicultural church, which means that we seek to bring together lots of different kinds of people to worship God in Spirit and truth.
The church is part of a family of New City churches in St. Louis that also includes New City-University City and New City-South City.
Pastor Thurman Williams (see more below) oversees the church and has lived in the West End neighborhood with his family since 2013. Before St. Louis, Pastor Thurman lived in Baltimore and helped start New Song Community Church, an economically and racially diverse church in the Sandtown community.
An important part of the New City culture is to show God’s love to widows, orphans, immigrants and refugees of St. Louis. To that end we formed Restore St. Louis to combine our leadership and church community with the human, financial, and spiritual resources of other churches, students, and businesses from the area and across the nation.
