Welcome to WPC

Welcome to Westminster!

Welcome to Westminster! We’re so glad you’re interested in learning more about our church. Click here for a short introduction to our community. You can learn about our beliefs here and our practices here (mission) and here (connect and grow). But the best way to get to know us is by visiting us on a Sunday morning. We’d love to welcome you to worship! If you’d like to join us online you can find the Zoom link here. If you’d like to join us in person, here’s some information you might find helpful:

How do I get here?

By car: Our church has a parking lot directly next to our building–set your GPS to 85 Chestnut Street and you’ll find it! Our Building Manager, John Fox, helps with parking most Sundays. He can fit about 30 cars into our lot. There is also street parking available around the neighborhood. The usual two-hour parking restriction doesn’t apply on Sundays.

By public transportation: Our church is just a one-block walk from the corner of Central Ave. and Swan Street where a number of Albany’s busses stop including the #1, #10, #11, #12 and #18. Check www.cdta.org for help in planning your route.

By bike: We have a railing in front of the church which is a perfect spot for locking your bike. In the summer months, consider using a bike share: www.cdphpcycle.org.

By foot: Westminster is located in one of the most walkable parts of Albany!

Worship

We strive for worship that uplifts and inspires with Biblically-grounded preaching that speaks to contemporary human need and excellence in sacred music. Learn more here.

Children

All children are welcome in worship. Your children may sit with you or in the children’s pew. Church School for all ages begins after worship. Find out more about church school here.

Nursery
Our nursery is currently closed for health and safety reasons. Usually we offer nursery care during worship for children up to age 5.
Accessibility

We are fully accessible. We have an Inductive Loop Assistance Listening System and the church is handicapped accessible. We also have LARGE PRINT bulletins available for every service.

Parking

We have our own parking lot at 85 Chestnut St. just west of the church building. Find directions here.

What to wear?
Come as you are! You will see people wearing everything from traditional African dress to sport coats to Sunday casual. Whatever you wear, be comfortable and be yourself.
