Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary
We gather on Sunday mornings to celebrate God’s presence with us and
to learn of God’s purpose for us and for the world. The encounter with
God brings hope, renewal, courage, and strength to God’s people. We meet
God through the hearing and preaching of God’s Word given to us in the
church’s book, the Bible; through the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s
Supper that unite us with Jesus Christ; through the gift of music in the
singing of hymns and sacred songs traditional and contemporary and the
offering of praise by choir and organ; through the quiet intimacy of prayer
and meditation; and through the joyful fellowship of Christians with one
We are always happy to welcome visitors and newcomers to our worship
Sunday School is both affirming and exciting, committed to teaching children
that God is always with us.

Music has always been an integral part of worship at Westminster Church.
The choir, consisting of approximately 40 members including four soloists,
performs an anthem or two every Sunday and leads the congregation
in the singing of hymns. Music at Westminster ranges from the works
of such classic composers as Bach, Mozart and Brahms, right up to
more modern music by composers such as Britten and Rutter. Over the
years the choir have performed many of the major works such as the
Mozart Requiem, Faure Requiem and Handel’s Messiah.
| The choir occasionally
presents additional concerts that not only include sacred music, but
music from Broadway shows, light operettas and folk music. Over the
years, the Westminster Choir has produced two tapes. These tapes are
available for purchase through the church office.

Casavant Freres, Opus 481
“In 1912, Westminster United Church installed a large four manual, 49
stop Casavant Organ in its new building. This organ, modified with a new
console and several additional ranks in 1951, as well as a tonal revision
in 1985, is the grandest organ in Winnipeg in the Romantic tonal tradition.
For this reason it has served as the location for many concerts and recitals
by local players and world-renowned organ virtuosos over the years.” (The
Organ in Manitoba James B. Hartman) For organ concerts, such as
the Westminster Concert Organ Series, the choir screens are removed providing
superb sight lines to the console. The organ presently has 54 ranks in
a wonderful acoustic setting.
