Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the death of Bishop Francis Asbury
Work and Chapel: Black Country Methodism
Commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the death of Bishop Francis Asbury, Black Country boy and first Joint Superintendent Methodist minister in America took place in partnership with the Black Country Living Museum. We celebrated Asbury's early years as a local apprentice metal worker, and the impact of Methodism on the industrialised Midlands of the nineteenth century.
At the New Connexion Providence Chapel a Commemoration worship service took place and we were delighted to be joined by the President, Revd Steve Wild, Vice President, Dr Jill Barber, of the Methodist Conference and Craig Gaffney, Youth President within the Connexional Team who all particpated in the services.
We discovered our living history in an exciting day for all the family
