Westminster Presbyterian Church was founded in the then-rural community of Upper St. Clair in August 1946 by a young Marine Chaplain, John Galbreath, who had just returned from the war in the Pacific. He went door-to-door, visiting people and inviting them to come to a new church he was establishing. Rev. Galbreath's goal was to find people where people were hurting and try to help them.
Sixty-two years later, Westminster has become a landmark in the South Hills area. Located just a half-mile south of South Hills Village on Route 19, Westminster offers three Sunday worship services in a beautiful Georgian building that houses over 400 activities each month, including a nursery school, an early childhood development center, the Westminster Recreational Outreach Center (WROC), and an outdoor labyrinth available for meditation year round.
Westminster's Music & Arts Series offers a variety of musical programs in its acoustically superior sanctuary. These events are scheduled from October through May and are free and open to the public.
The church office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The church has large parking lots on both the north and south ends of the building, along with handicapped parking in the front of the office entrance. Parking is free at all times.
