About

Wesley is a caring community – a place of prayer and worship for people of all backgrounds, with a remarkable diversity of ethnicities and origins that we treasure and celebrate. We believe in God’s love and share it here, caring deeply for one another and finding here the support and compassion that moves us forward.

Wesley is an active place – taking seriously the basic Methodist notion that the love we receive is the love we must share in the world. We do that by offering nearly $30,000 in national and local mission and support of people in ministry; in Mission Partnership with local area agencies such as a Providence health clinic and Habitat of Northern RI; and in global mission support through the New England United Methodist Conference and organizations such as Bridge Liberia. We supply a local food pantry, offer Christmas gifts to folks in need and share winter clothing around the globe in partnership with Clothes To Go in Mansfield, MA.

Wesley is a United Methodist congregation – believing in a gracious God, Jesus as our Savior and Example, and the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen us. We believe in “Grace in Action,” in personal experiences of God’s love that translate into service in God’s world.

Wesley is the place for you!

History:

Wesley Church began its ministry in Lincoln in the 1960’s. Three churches (First Methodist, Thomson Methodist, and St. John’s E.U.B. from Pawtucket) discerned God’s guidance as they joined together and moved to our present location. In the 1970’s, Berkley Methodist Church also joined us.  Wesley Church serves persons living in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
