Taize Worship Service:
A Service of Prayer, Music, and Contemplation

First Wednesday of the Month


In a darkened Sanctuary illuminated only by candlelight, Westminster regularly offers a Taizé prayer service the first Wednesday of each month. Taizé worship is a unique prayer service originating from a joint Protestant/Catholic monastic community in France, with meditative singing from the Psalms, short readings, and brief periods of silence. There is no preaching. Everyone is welcome to come experience this new way to worship.

Small Groups


A small group is a Christian community of approximately 6-12 people who gather together to get to know one another, to support each other, to help each other grow spiritually, and to increase the ministries within the congregation and outreach to the community. Currently WPC’s Small groups include A Woman’s Walking Group, Healthy Eating and Cooking, Knitting, Home Visitations and more. Check out Small Groups in the Grow section of the web site.
