Wesley Center AME Zion Church is one of Pittsburgh's most historic African-American churches.
The history of Wesley Center A.M.E. Zion Church began in 1836 when a group of men and women met to worship God. Due to the rapid growth of the church in 1927, the community built one of the largest edifices in Southwestern Pennsylvania on the corner of Centre and Francis Avenue, in the heart of the Hill District.
Designed by a Black architect and constructed by Black artisans, the church building is an enduring testimony of the innate abilities and talents of a proud and resourceful people.
The Wesley Center provides many valuable outreach programs to the neighboring community. These programs include after-school enrichment for youths, mentoring to older students, senior citizen programs and much more.
Hours vary depending on the event, program or service.
On-street parking is available.
