Wesley Day Service


‘In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate Street…I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ. Christ alone for salvation;’

– John Wesley 24th May 1738

Our Wesley Day service at the New Room on 24th May will be held in the Chapel at 11am.
This year’s service takes the theme of a ‘Ship Into Harbour’. The Wesley brothers, Charles and John find they have reached the haven of God’s grace and from then on their mission is set in a much stronger direction.

Inline with Government guidance in England, we plan for this service to take place in the chapel, however to allow for social distancing numbers are limited. If you would like to attend in person please could you kindly email the New Room at info@newroombristol.org.uk

The service will also be streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
