"As we inhabit the Gospel story for now, we will always be shaped by the faithful community who gave that story to us.

Heritage is part of our mission because it is in our roots, that our strength and nourishment are found from it, as surely as a tree stands open to the bright light of the day only because of its firm anchoring in the ground."

Reverend Dr Martyn Atkins

General Secretary of the Methodist Church in Britain



Heritage News

Our bi-annual newsletter is published in September and March. We aim to give a flavour in each edition of the wide variety of ways in which Methodism's heritage is being conserved and used for mission.

Expect articles from across the Connexion, from our key heritage sites, archives, website editors, and members of the Heritage Committee, local churches and the Wesley Historical Society. We have introduced readers to exhibitions, trails and educational programmes, publications and conferences.

Heritage News is a FREE publication, available in print or by email (in colour or as a printer-friendly black & white version). If you are willing and able to distribute Heritage News to members of your local history group or church, we would be delighted to arrange the delivery of a sufficient number of copies to you. Subscribe here.

If you are interested in submitting an article for Heritage News , please email Owen Roberts, Methodist Heritage Officer or call him on: 0207 467 5164

An Invitation to share memories

The trustees at Epworth Old Rectory are teaming up with Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) to establish The Methodist Women Collection.

MWiB have engaged a researcher, Sarah Braidsell, to explore the history of the Methodist Women's movement (meet Sarah on page 6 of Heritage News Spring 2015).

Are you involved in MWiB? Or were you or your mother or grandmother in Women's Network?

Would you share your story, with Sarah, of getting involved with MWiB? How has being in a Methodist Women's group affected you? You'll find a story submission form here please return the forms to Sarah!
