Anniversary Theme: Aldersgate, Fired Up for Service

       Aldersgate will celebrate our anniversary as a church having served its members and the community for 59 year  It’s legacy as a church in the United Methodist tradition  began with a worship service on December 5, 1965, at the site of what is now St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church on Beasley Road by 70 visionaries. The following Sunday, December 12, 1965, the official organizational service was held. Charter Sunday was held six months later on May 22, 1966.

      The name Aldersgate has significance in the Methodist faith because of its founder John Wesley’s experience in a worship setting at  Aldersgate Street in London on May 24, 1783.  It was during this moment that the Rev. John Wesley said, “I felt my heart strangely warmed”. It was in that spirit and warmth that the name Aldersgate was chosen for the Jackson congregation.

     Join us for worship at 11 a.m. May 19 th . Our theme is “Mission Possible: Aldersgate on ‘Fire to Serve.’  The scripture reference is: Matthew 28:19-20, The Great Commission. Rev. Dr. Benetra Mangum Johnson is the guest special speaker.  The CallawayHigh School Singers will present special music. 

      Aldersgate began as a church in December 1965 and has continued to address spiritual needs through biblical teachings in the north jackson area and is looking to continue that tradition..  Rev. Cynthia A. Cross serves as senior pastor with a mission to encourage leadership development and make disciples for Christ.


Mission Statement: “Aldersgate, a Church after God’s own heart, creating environments for the transformation of Disciples to be more like Christ in our community and in our world.
