How to support and donate to The New Room


This historic building relies on the support of visitors to remain open as a place of prayer and worship, to be kept in good repair and to operate as a centre where people can learn about John and Charles Wesley and the origins of Methodism.

There are two ways in which you can help support us in our work. The first is by becoming a Friend of the New Room. The Friends support the work of the New Room by making regular donations, preferably by Standing Order and Gift Aided. The annual subscription is £25.00 per person or £500.00 for life membership. Money raised in this way also supports the work at Charles Wesley’s House in Bristol, the other important heritage site in our care.

As well as enjoying the satisfaction of knowing that you are contributing towards the ongoing care of these unique buildings and the mission work that takes place here, as a Friend you will the monthly New Room e-newsletter and receive invitations to various events. If you would like to become a Friend, please send your details and payment for the attention of the Treasurer at the New Room.

The second way in which you can help is by becoming a volunteer. Volunteers are needed on a daily basis to welcome visitors to the New Room and help with any questions they may have. You can decide how often you choose to volunteer and, whilst some knowledge of the Wesleys is helpful, you don’t need to be an expert! The most important attributes are enthusiasm, a friendly nature and a willingness to learn and meet new and fascinating people from all over the world!

I do hope you feel able to support us in this work and thank you for your interest.
