Sundays difficult? If you're not able to get to Sunday worship, we have many weekday meetings. Take a look at these:
Small groups for fellowship, Bible study, prayer and church life development meet regularly. Find out more by exploring our website, or pay us a visit.
For more in-depth teaching and discussion, a group meets at Wesley most Thursday evenings to study a book of the Bible, led by various members of the church. Meetings are 7.30 for 8.00 for an hour, and include refreshments, music and worship. Our previous study was 1 Corinthians. On 21 September we started a short series on Discipleship.
Wesley Painting Club meets on the first Saturday of the month.
Scaffolding has been taken down from the spire now that the repaired windows have been replaced. We can now make the entrance more presentable.
Attention turns to upgrading the adjacent building - the old manse, 84 Queen's Road - for outreach and mission. The architect is now preparing the design.
'Aspire 84' is the current development project at Wesley church.
Traidcraft is an important part of Wesley's mission activity. Through it, we have supported the project to provide Amankwatia village, Ghana, with its own water borehole and pump, and a new toilet block. There is a Traidcraft stall appproximately once a month on a Sunday morning.
