METHODIST HERITAGE SITES IN BRITAIN
Wesley's Chapel, London: At the Museum of Methodism you can explore the story of Methodism from John Wesley to the present day. Next door to the chapel is John Wesley's house, one of the finest surviving small Georgian townhouses in London. As well as the museum there are regular services and events throughout the week.
The New Room, Bristol: The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement.
Epworth Rectory, Epworth: Explore the early lives of the Wesley's in rural Lincolnshire at this beautiful grade one listed Queen Anne building.
Whilst these three sites are impressive, there are many more places of great significance to the history of Methodism throughout the country. Information on these can be found through an interactive map on the Methodist Church website.
The Primitive Methodist Connexion joined with several other groups in 1932 to form the Methodist Church of Great Britain. You can find out what is going on locally in the Methodist Church through our District website.
Primitive Methodism does still exist in other parts of the world. In 1829, several English missionaries visited America and established a mission for English immigrants. They went on to form the Primitive Methodist Church in the United States which exists to this day.
