I am Refugee 1

The ‘I am a Refugee’ exhibition, created by the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, will be on view at the New Room / John Wesley’s Chapel from Monday 19th June to Sunday 9th July. It is part of the ‘I am a Refugee’ campaign which celebrates refugees and their contributions to the UK. It reminds the public that those who are given sanctuary give so much back in return. By illustrating the diversity of the refugee population, the array of experiences they have had, and the dedication, creativity, skills and knowledge that they bring to the UK, this powerful visual campaign helps to create a positive and balanced debate on refugee issues. 19th June – 15th July. The New Room/John Wesley’s Chapel, 36 Horsefair, Bristol, BS1 3JE

Charles Wesley’s House

This house was the last Bristol home of Charles and Sarah Wesley and their three children, Charles jr, Sarah and Samuel. The family moved to London in 1771. The house is known as the ‘Charles Wesley House and Heritage Centre’. In addition to giving visitors an idea of what an eighteenth century family home might have looked like, there are also plans to have the New Room’s Hymnody Project on display around the house as the ‘Father of the English Hymn’, Charles Wesley lived here. We hope that you enjoy taking this online tour. If you would like to visit the house in person, please contact the New Room.
