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

Making plans to visit England

My wife and I plan to travel to England in July. We are making plans to visit several sites important to John Wesley and the Methodist Church.

We plan to visit

We plan to visit Oxford, too. I am trying to determine the best site to visit.

My hope is to find someone at each of these sites that will talk on camera for a brief interview talking about Wesley, his ties to that community and his accomplishments for Methodism.
