Students/Wesley Club

College students are always welcome at University Gathering and are invited to join us for Enrichment Hour or Sunday morning worship. In addition, Wesley Club, a student-based organization, is located next door to University Gathering in the building to the south. The Wesley Club community provides a great opportunity to bridge the gap between academics and faith. Wesley is an open space to hang out, study, and explore spirituality through Supper Church, Vespers, small groups and service projects.

Emerald City Metropolitan Community Church

Emerald City Metropolitan Community Church worships on Sunday mornings at 11:30 at Wesley Club. Established in 1972, they are the oldest Seattle LGBTQ+ church. For more information, visit
