Event description

Description

Our final official outing of 2016! Probably.

The origins of Methodism are firmly based in the City of London and in Bristol.

In late 1739, John Wesley founded Methodism, having had a serious theological issue with the Moravians with whom he was until then associated. This added a new nonconformist sect to the the many, but one which quickly became a worldwide movement which thrives to this day. The Wesley complex in City Road includes the historic early buildings from that time, particularly the Foundery Chapel which had been an ordnance factory, abandoned some years previously.

The site is a complex of Georgian and Victorian buildings located in a fine Georgian courtyard.

Our tour will include Wesley's Chapel, the Foundery Chapel, the Museum of Methodism, Wesley's House and grave. A special treat - for some - will undoubtedly be the famous Gent's loos, all original Thomas Crapper fixtures.

Approximate tour time is 1.5 hours.

Ticket proceeds in support of Wesley's Chapel.
