Who We Are
Our congregation is part of the United Church of Christ (UCC), a mainline Protestant denomination. We are a church of the people, in which we respect the democratic process in all that we do. We believe strongly in the priesthood of all believers, and consider all our members to be ministers of the faith. The UCC is a non-doctrinal association of churches that have come together to do God’s ministry.
Westwood Hills Congregational Church began in 1925, when eleven believers gathered in a community center in Brentwood to found a new church. In 1926, our present site on Westwood Boulevard was purchased, and in 1928, the original sanctuary, now called Ray Hall, was completed and the congregation moved to Westwood.
