Our Mission Statement

Wesley Place Methodist Church, Alsager exists

  • to offer to God our best in worship
  • to support and encourage one another on our faith journey
  • to serve the community in which it is placed
  • to welcome all who request what the church is able to offer e.g. baptisms, weddings, funerals as well as membership of church organisations which cater for all, from infancy to old age
  • to make the premises available for community groups
  • to encourage members to become involved in community issues.

As part of the worldwide Christian Church, we seek to be aware of world church, ecumenical, ecological and local issues and to support by prayer and regular giving those about which we are particularly concerned.

How we fulfil our Mission Statement

To understand and fulfil our purpose we recognise our obligation to work with others beyond Wesley Place, e.g. internationally, ecumenically and within wider Methodism, and to take an active part in Churches Together in Alsager.

Wesley Place also supports God's people in the wider world by:

  • Supporting Fairtrade activities within Alsager, using fairly traded products in the activities which take place on the premises.
  • Supporting eco friendly activities, by promoting receycling of waste, saving energy, and offsetting its carbon footprint by the planting of trees
  • Sponsoring a class of children at the school run by COPA in the Dominican Republic

April 2008 - Wesley Place Given Eco-Congregation Award

Following a visit of the assessors in March 2008, Wesley Place was given an award by the Eco-Congregation Movement.The assessors were particularly impressed by:

  • the ownership of change by every committee and team within the various functions of the church. The environment agenda is seen as everyone's responsibility
  • the beneficial effects of hanging major efforts and publicity drives on   One World Week, now spread across the town, reaching churches and schools
