We want to nurture a diverse and inclusive community here at Wesley. We are committed to doing this through our Sunday and midweek worship and through our many weekday activities. Over 30 years ago, we felt called to open up our city centre building. This has led us to open our hearts and our minds to all those who would like to share and foster community here.
The Methodist Church in Britain is also fully committed to inclusion:
“Just as God’s grace is for all, so is Methodism: all are welcome in the broadest sense. Hospitality, openness and welcome to all are at the heart of what it means to be a Methodist. A community is genuinely inclusive if that hospitality extends to every level of its life.”
From Towards an Inclusive Church
Wesley is a registered member of Inclusive Church, a national network of individuals and churches celebrating diversity and creating truly welcoming places and communities.
We have adopted an Equality and Diversity Policy to guide our life together.
The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.
