Westminster United Church offers a large, inspiring venue, the design of which is based on an interpretation of the Gothic Revival, a popular architectural style that drew its inspiration from medieval churches. Our architecture emphasizes pinnacle towers, slender vertical supports and large openings, and a beautiful rose stained-glass window. 

Westminster is an ideal venue for concerts, grad exercises, and recording sessions, as well as weddings and funerals. The church is well served by public transit. On-street parking is available nearby, along with commercial parking at Misericordia Hospital Parkade (a short walk from the church). A side entrance on Westminster Avenue has wheelchair access, which serves the main floor of the building and two wheelchair-access washrooms. 

The Sanctuary features main floor and balcony seating for over 900, a large choir loft, a Casavant Freres pipe organ, a 7’6″ Yamaha piano, hardwood floors and carpet aisle runners. The acoustics are among the best in the city. A sound system is also available. The large new platform with special lighting works for orchestras, choirs, solo recitals, grad ceremonies, and concerts and performances of many different kinds.
