Welcome to Westwood Hills Congregational Church!

Sanctuary at Christmas, Advent banners, Christmas tree

Our congregation is part of the United Church of Christ (UCC), a mainline Protestant denomination. 

We welcome you to join us for worship In Person or on Zoom.

Our Worship Service
We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am. All of our services are relaxed, and feature reading, preaching, prayer, and music. You will be invited (not required) to stand, sing, pray, greet your neighbor, be in silence, or read responsively. We celebrate communion on the first and third Sundays of the month, and on certain special occasions. Our communion table is open to everyone.

Childcare and Sunday School

Children and families of all kinds are welcome at Westwood Hills. We offer toddler care during worship for 1-3 year olds, and Sunday School for young people pre-k through high school. (Please click here for information on childcare and Sunday School procedures during our COVID reopening process.) More information is available on our Children and Youth Page.

Infants remain with their parents during worship. An infant room with changing table, rocking chair and age-appropriate toys is located at the rear of the Sanctuary. This room may be used for nursing or play, and has a speaker which will allow you to hear the service.

All children are welcome to stay with their parents during worship if that is more comfortable for them.

What should I wear?
Some people come dressed in their Sunday best. Others come in blue jeans, sweatshirts and casual attire. We encourage you to wear clothes that make you feel comfortable and that will help you worship most fully.

How long do services last?
Worship lasts about an hour.

Is there a coffee hour or fellowship time after church?
Yes! After each worship service, we gather on our patio for a time of fellowship and refreshment. We invite you to join us for conversation and coffee.

Is the church handicap accessible?
Westwood Hills offers a range of accessibility accommodations.

How do I get there? Where do I park?
We are located on the northwest corner of LaGrange Avenue and Westwood Boulevard in West Los Angeles, between Santa Monica and Olympic Boulevards. Visit our Find Us page for a map and link to directions. The entrance to our parking lot is on Westwood Boulevard, just north of the church. Street parking is usually plentiful as well. The main entrance to our sanctuary is just off the patio on the south (LaGrange) side of the church. Look for our greeters at the door!
