Wesley travels in UK

We finally made it back to North Carolina after traveling the UK and France. We visited several Methodist heritage sites in the UK. I will share some photos and video of our visits in the coming days. Here are some of the photos from Wesley Chapel.


Displayed in the Wesley Chapel museum are the chalices and collection plate used in the Foundery, the first meeting place for Methodists established by John Wesley in London.


Displayed in the Wesley Chapel museum is a Bible found in restoration work at the Old Rectory in Epworth, UK.

More photos from Wesley Chapel and St Paul’s Cathedral are available on the JohnWesleyBlog flickr page.

Aldersgate site marked by flame

Methodists mark May 24 as Aldersgate Day. in 1738 on that date, John Wesley ‘experienced confirmation of his salvation by the grace of God’ in a meeting room on Aldersgate Street. Wesley wrote: I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.

The meeting room no longer exists in London. But the site is marked with a large flame monument. The monument is on Aldersgate Street in Nettleton Court. Here is the text on the monument.

The monument is along the John Wesley Walking tour offered by the Methodist Heritage website that also includes Wesley Chapel and St Paul’s Cathedral.
