Wesley United Methodist Church at the University of Illinois

Wesley is a diverse congregation that offers individuals and families a place to belong. We are located in the heart of the University of Illinois campus and serve the university as well as the larger community.

At Wesley, people of all ages, from all over the world, gather to worship, study, and serve together.

Wesley has three primary worship services: a traditional service at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays; a contemporary service at 11:15 a.m. on Sundays; and a student-led worship at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Whether you attend one or all three, Wesley is a place to gather together, with beautiful music, in a vibrant and inclusive community.

At Wesley, we don’t have all the answers. Instead, we’re constantly asking questions and offer a safe, comfortable, and diverse environment in which to ask questions as you explore your faith in fellowship with friends, old and new.
