From Larry Hayward, Pastor

It is a privilege to welcome you to Westminster. I hope this site provides a sense of who we are and what we believe.

Westminster is a terrific congregation….open, thoughtful, energetic. Despite having nearly 1000 members, we are a close-knit community. We care. We are committed to getting to know our members and visitors, and hope that as a church, we can nurture everyone who comes to us in the Christian faith in a way that fits who God has made them, and Christ has redeemed them, to be. Above all, in all that we do, we seek to “worship well.”

If you are exploring faith for the first time, seeking to reconnect with your faith, or searching for a church home and would like to learn more about Westminster, just call me at 703-549-4766 or email me at LHayward@wpc-alex.org. I would enjoy a conversation with you. If you visit in worship, introduce yourself at the door so I can have a name to go with your face.

Hope to see you soon!


Westminster is a worshipping community deeply committed to study, service, and sharing God’s love.

By the grace of Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit, the people of Westminster Presbyterian Church joyfully commit ourselves to build and nurture a worship-centered church to the glory of God. In vibrant corporate worship, we hear the Word of God proclaimed in sermon and celebrated in song and sacrament. We are called through prayer, education, fellowship and mission to uphold one another, to grow in faith and Christian love, and to serve God faithfully in our community, in our nation’s capital, and throughout the world. We welcome to Westminster all who seek to discover the significance and meaning of Jesus Christ in their lives.
