About UPTOWN

What

We set up a full band with sound and lights; we also have artists who interact with the people passing by. We set up on Saturday evenings on the 2nd and 4th weekends 9 months out of the year. This is a great opportunity to engage a wide variety of people from all walks of life from college students, bar crawlers, dinner goers, the homeless, people who live uptown and tourists. Many people stop, watch and listen. We engage the crowd by drawing them in with music and art and welcome them as “guests” into our “space” to make conversation and get to know them and bless them with the Love and Joy of our God.

When

  • 2nd and 4th Saturdays
  • 7:00-10:00pm
  • March through November

Where

The corner of Trade and Tryon streets in Uptown Charlotte in front of the “Grande Disco” sculpture.
Directions & information

Vision

To bring Glory to God by releasing worship through creativity in music and arts. We aim to shift the spiritual atmosphere at the center of Uptown. To selflessly engage the people around us by pouring out Love and Joy of Jesus. To encourage unity between different churches as we join together from various backgrounds for one cause, to bless the people of Charlotte. Join the party!

History

Two guys in Ministry school...

Fifteen years ago, Jesse Shane and Aswan North, then students of Morning Star University, heard from the Lord to go, take their guitar and Djembe to the corner of Trade and Tryon St… and worship!

People, like you...

Many faithful people have since helped carry the torch of UPTOWN Worship Nights. More than 100,000 have witnessed this ongoing worship collaboration of Jesus followers in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Serve as one, for the One...

We frequently hear “what church are you with?” Our answer: “we’re from many churches all over, gathered together as one, all for the ONE.”

The Word is getting out...

There’s an anticipation, something’s here, we are gathering, outside the four walls, the church is waking up, praying, worshiping JESUS, loving people, ALL people, changing souls for eterninty, join us.

This could happen anywhere...

In 2014, UPTOWN Worship Nights concept expanded to Wilmington, North Carolina.
