Part of a weekend exploring the teachings of the Wesley Brothers (John and Charles)
Led by Rev Andrew Pratt, hymn writer and former minister in the circuit
Andrew will lead us in singing and exploring the theology of some of Charles' most loved hymns.
In 1786, nearly 50 years after his heart was 'strangely warmed' John Wesley reflected that:
“I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out.”
John Wesley, “Thoughts Upon Methodism,” (1786)
Led by Rev Pete Pillinger this day will explore what John Wesley meant by 'Doctrine, spirit and discipline'
Please bring a packed lunch. Tea and Coffee provided.
