About Wesley Memorial:
Wesley Memorial was planted across the street from the University of Virginia in the 1950s, and we partner with the Wesley Foundation next door to reach out to the University community. We have a long history of activism in Charlottesville, and remain committed to justice. Wesley is a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network, a Methodist organization that seeks justice for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Wesley became a sanctuary church in 2018, and rejoices that that person can now live safely and freely in the community. We seek to provide a spiritual foundation for children growing up in our church, built of the progressive Christian values of unconditional love and inclusion.
