About us

Westminster Unitarian Church is a Welcoming Congregation member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.  We care about our members, our neighbors and the world around us.   We are a member congregation of the Ballou Channing District of the UUA.

If you visit us for a Sunday service, you will find members eager to talk with you and welcome you. If you'd like to stay with us for coffee hour after service, members holding red coffee mugs are especially happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have.

Some people have asked if they have to be a member to attend Westminster.  The answer is that anyone may attend.  We encourage you to get to know our congregation before you decide to become a member.

As a UUA Welcoming Congregation, we welcome all individuals without regard to race, color, physical challenge, sexual orientation, age or national origin.

Westminster Unitarian Church began on Janary 5, 1828 at a private home in Providence, Rhode Island.  Over the course of 130 years our church occupied several locations in Providence.  In 1958, with many members now living south of the capital, the church relocated to the town of East Greenwich.  Our beautiful sanctuary sits atop "Sunset Ridge" on the corner of Kenyon and First Avenues.
