Centre Presbyterian Church, also known as Centre Church, is a historic Presbyterian church at Main (state highway NY 23) and Church streets in Windham, Greene County, New York. It was built in 1835 and is a New England style frame church with elements of Federal and Greek Revival design. It features a pedimented grant portico supported by paired Ionic order columns and a three stage bell tower.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1] After being closed for several years, the church was donated to the town of Windham in the 1970s for use as a civic centre. The building underwent extensive renovations in the 1990s and is home to the Windham Music Festival.[3]
