Aldersgate Sunday is a great opportunity to celebrate the work of God in our lives, and to reflect on how we can respond to all that God has given us.

In the Methodist Church calendar, Aldersgate Sunday is the Sunday nearest to

24th  May (traditionally known as 'Wesley Day') or the Sunday before it. It commemorates a life-changing moment in the Christian journey of John Wesley, the most prominent of the founders of Methodism.

In 1738, the 35-year-old John Wesley had a profound religious experience. After worshipping with a group of German Moravians, who believed in a deeply felt, inward spirituality, he finally experienced a sense of God’s forgiveness as he never had before. It happened in a chapel on Aldersgate Street in London.

“I felt my heart strangely warmed,” John Wesley wrote about the experience in his Journal. “I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation, and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine.”

May 24th 1783 was the day John Wesley’s heart was “strangely warmed” because of the realisation of salvation through grace and only by grace, and so is often heralded as the day the Methodist movement was born.
