welcome to aldersgate


We are a Reconciling Ministries Network Congregation

Be at peace, you are among friends. Aldersgate United Methodist Church is located on Concord Pike in Wilmington, Delaware.

Aldersgate UMC opens its life to all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, social status, age, mental health, intellectual or physical ability, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We affirm our belief that God's grace is available to all as we commit ourselves to be an inclusive Christ-centered community. As a reconciling congregation, we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people as visitors and members. All are welcome in our community of faith, as we fulfill our purpose of making disciples for the transformation of the world.

When you come visit, wear what you're comfortable wearing and you'll see everything from suits to shorts in most services.

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 

By this, all will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.

John 13:34-35
