A City of Winnipeg and Province of Manitoba heritage-designated structure since 1992, the Westminster United Church building celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012. As part of those celebrations, the four-manual Casavant pipe organ console was refurbished and upgraded. In November 2016, horizontal copper trumpets were installed, framing the Rose Window. The church, also a West Broadway Heritage site and classified as English Gothic revival, was built in an auditorium style plan with the sanctuary laid out in the form of a cross and the cornerstone in the form of a cube. The beautiful sanctuary is known for its fine acoustics and its spectacular stained glass windows, most notably the rose window facing east. The congregation is currently celebrating its 125th anniversary.
There will be guided tours at 12:00pm, 1:30pm, 3:00pm, followed by organ demonstrations in the sanctuary.
