History of Wesley’s

History of Wesley’s

The group started on 26th February 2003 and was named after John Wesley the co-founder of Methodism, whose tercentenary was celebrated that year.

We have been meeting every Wednesday and Friday morning during term time. At the first session we had three children and met in our church lounge, we now average ten times that number at each session. As the numbers grew we moved into a larger room and then into a utility annexe built during the war in 1941 at the back of the church, very hot in summer and cold in the winter.

In 2013 this was demolished as part of our church redevelopment and replaced with purpose built facilities for our work with children. We now have a warm and friendly well-equipped, carpeted space, with ground source heating and outside play area.
