Marking the 300th anniversary of Charles Wesley’s birth, the pilgrimage will provide participants with the historical background and religious heritage of the Methodist movement and Wesley’s life and witness.
Visits to sites associated with this great hymn writer include Epworth, his place of birth; Oxford, where he studied and taught; Bristol, where he helped to form the first Methodist Societies and began to raise his family; Wales, the home of his wife, Sally Gwynn; and London, where he and his family spent the final years of his life, overseeing the expanding Methodist movement with his brother, John.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the England that Charles Wesley knew and loved: the rolling countryside of the Cotswold Hills near Oxford, the fenland around Epworth, the charm of small English villages, and the elegance of the ancient city of Bath.
