Visiting Wesley Chapel in London

Flight delays in the US resulted in a delayed arrival at Wesley chapel in London but assistant pastor Jennifer Potter greeted us warmly. She encouraged us to spend some time looking through the Methodist Museum and church’s sanctuary.

Rev Potter talked about the site’s connection to Wesley. Nearby was the foundery that served as the first Methodist meeting site and Wesley’s home.  Wesley had the chapel built when the foundery lease ran out. The church now serves as own active congregation as well as teaching site about early Methodism.image
