Westminster Church Minneapolis By Michael Birawer

By Michael Birawer

Westminster Church Minneapolis by Michael Birawer

At its founding in 1857, the congregation consisted of eight people of Scotch, Irish, and Welsh heritage. They raised $2,000 and built a church on 4th Street in Minneapolis. The Westminster congregation grew rapidly, prompting the construction of a new, larger church on 7th Street and then Nicollet Avenue, which opened its doors in March 1883.

Some 12 years later the building was heavily damaged by fire, forcing the congregation to move. Ground was broken in 1896 on the new site at the corner of 12th Street and Nicollet Avenue – Westminster’s current site – and the congregation began meeting for services at the present church in 1897.

In 1998 a major renovation of the sanctuary was undertaken. This $3.5 million project focused on three main areas: restoration of elements found in the original sanctuary design; renovation of tired and worn elements; and desired improvements. A primary objective of the sanctuary project was to restore elements of the original design. These elements, lost in earlier renovations, included enriched color throughout the sanctuary, decorative painting, patterned carpet, and an uncluttered space. The renovated sanctuary reopened for worship on Sunday, December 20, 1998.
