Who We Are
Wesley-Knox is located in Wortley Village, in the heart of Old South London. Wesley-Knox is a uniting as well as a United church. Founded in 1874, the present building was erected in 1881 and enlarged in 1908. At that time, it was known as Askin Street Methodist Church. With church union in 1925, it was renamed Wesley United Church. In 1972, it amalgamated with Knox United Church, and in 2006, with Centennial United Church.
Open doors, open hearts, open minds...
We try to be a welcoming, caring church. About one half of our members come from Old South London, the rest from all over the city of London and beyond. We are not a church that has all the answers. Some of us are settled in our faith, others are seekers. But wherever we are on our faith journeys, we try to be respectful of one another as we come together to proclaim and celebrate the love of God through worship and through service.
Wesley-Knox United Church is a community of Christians which, through God’s love, seeks to welcome and nurture everyone.
Being an open, welcoming church that embraces diversity
These four statements now guide all of our endeavors.
