Wesley United Methodist Church

Wesley United Methodist Church is a Christian church located in the Japantown area of San Jose, California. Since 1895, Wesley ministered primarily to Japanese and Japanese Americans. While remaining true to its Japanese heritage, in recent years, Wesley has become a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and multi-generational church family.

We look forward to seeing you!
