How Methodism became a national movement – Talk by Gary M. Best

Join us for a talk by New Room Warden Gary M. Best, exploring why and how the Methodist movement spread from its centres in Bristol and London to become a national  movement across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

This morning session examines not only John and Charles’ role but other key individuals responsible  – including Benjamin Ingham, John Nelson, William Grimshaw, John Bennet, and the Calvinistic Methodists: George Whitefield, Howell Harris, and the Countess of Huntingdon. It also looks at how circuits developed as the movement spread and why there was so much opposition to Methodism from the established Church.

Tickets £3 including refreshments.  Free for New Room volunteers.

Contact community@newroombristol.org.uk to reserve your place or buy your ticket on the door, first come first served. Limited spaces available.
