An Invitation

If you are currently an active participant in a congregation, we wish you much blessing in your pilgrimage of faith. We invite you to continue in faithful living and service.

For those who are seeking a church home, we extend a warm invitation to our congregation on behalf of the Council of Westminster United Church.

As a congregation, Westminster seeks to be inclusive of all those who come in good will. We recognize that people will be at different places in their faith journeys and that we will perhaps suit some people better than others, yet we encourage you to visit our congregation. We have been blessed by the presence of many talented and faithful people, and take much joy in the growth and shaping of our family of faith.

Westminster received its charter on November 18th, 1990. While we tend to have younger members and many children, we welcome people of all ages, both single and families. We are committed to including all people in the life and worship of the congregation. Our theological perspective, though deeply rooted in tradition, is liberal, with freedom of thought encouraged, as we seek to grow in faith and in wisdom.

We not only welcome new people, but also seek their ideas and participation in a full range of church activities. There are many opportunities for participation in and the shaping of the living ministry of Westminster.

We encourage you to consider our congregation as you embark upon or renew your own faith journey.

Yours in service, 

Westminster United Church Council
