Disclaimer:..I'm a member of this church. WSPC indeed is a welcoming church. There are many different ways to get involved through small study groups, family activities, youth groups, etc. There is also a vibrant music environment, with bell choirs, and choirs ranging from young children to an excellent chancel choir. If you are looking for a welcoming worship experience in... More

Westside used to be the church the local elites attended. I don't know if that's still true, but it seems to me that the town's WASP personality has let its hair way down over the years. In its previous iteration, you would have been hard-pressed to distinguish it from an Oxford Movement Anglican Church, although I doubt that they ever... More

Westside has had a long history of superb music with at least eight different groups performing on a regular basis. The acoustics are excellent from virtually any seat in the house. We like to sit in the back balcony where every note can be heard. Over the past nine years, the Parlance Company has performed six concerts on Sunday afternoons.... More

West Side Presbyterian Church is a warm, welcoming place to worship, explore your faith, enjoy wonderful music (they have one of the biggest choir programs in the country), volunteer to help others and socialize with like-minded people. Many programs for children—from preschool to high school—means the youngest members of the family are part of the experience too.

The spirit and energy of this church is so warm and welcoming. The building appears austere but the congregation is inviting and friendly.

I visit this church on a semi-regular basis. Great place! The original historic Sanctuary building burned down in 2008, and from the ashes arose a brand new church and chapel that are pretty stunning in design. Plenty of parking, wonderful music programs, warm-hearted parishioners, good neighborhood, comfy pews and chairs. All around spiritually welcoming house of worship with a fresh,... More

Worshipful, quiet and enjoyable. Can be visited on weekdays,during office hours or at Sunday services (9:15 am, 10 am and 5:30 pm). Welcoming staff and welcoming congregation. As with any church there is no fee or expected contribution; of course contributions are well-received but not necessary at all to visit or attend services. Ask to see the public art gallery...

This was the church that had burned down a bunch of years back. It's a nice interesting motif, a church that doesn't make you intimidated. Great to go take a look when mass not in session, then decide to come back for a service
