Home Upcoming Newsletters Map About Us We are a reconciling congregation, which means we affirm the lifestyles of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and queer community.  We are one of only five Asian Pacific Islander churches in America to be so. A brief history Become a member Reconciling Congregation Aldersgate was founded in 1909 as the Japanese Methodist Episcopal Church of Palo Alto.  This early Ramona Street location was just a part of a Japanese American neighborhood.  The church would move several times before becoming Page Mill Methodist Church on Page Mill Road.  In 1965 we built our current facility on Manuela Ave. See our minister, Rev. Roger Morimoto for more details about becoming a member.
