Westminster & Source: A Great Collaboration
Westminster Hall: The Perfect Hall for Song
Westminster Hall's flexible seating accommodates up to 300 people. Westminster Hall is surrounded by dappled sunlight passing through the tree-like canopy overhead, speaking to the power and symbolism of nature and life’s cycles. The connection to nature is further strengthened by the relationship between the interior space of the Hall and the exterior environment of Westminster Plaza, accessed through the large glass opening to the west.
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.
