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

Wesley United Methodist Church loves to fellowship together through activities such as golf tournaments, family camps and other retreats, cooking, craft classes and much more!

Every September Wesley holds its annual fundraising event, Aki Matsuri, where we offer a variety of Japanese food, cultural activites, crafts, fruits, vegetables and fun!

We are located just north of the downtown San Jose business area and southeast of the Mineta San Jose Airport.


We look forward to seeing you!
