United Methodist History: The Wesley Pilgrimage in England

You are invited to an eleven-day spiritual pilgrimage, walking in the footsteps of John and Charles Wesley. This journey offers an opportunity to:

  • Immerse yourself in the Christian experiences of John and Charles Wesley
  • Learn, pray, worship, and explore places where the Wesley brothers encountered the living God
  • Form spiritual friendships with these British leaders and fellow pilgrims
  • Integrate Wesleyan theology, ministry, and missional leadership
  • Rekindle your spiritual passion

The Wesley Pilgrimage is open to all lay and clergy leaders. Together we will explore Epworth, the Wesley’s birthplace; Oxford, where John and Charles led the Holy Club; Bristol, where the class meeting was developed and Methodism became a movement; London, where both Wesley brothers experienced assurance of salvation; City Road the center of early Methodism; and Salisbury, home to a vital Methodist congregation once served by Francis Asbury.

The Pilgrimage is sponsored by Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church. Cosponsors: General Board of Higher Education and Ministry and General Commission on Archives and History of The United Methodist Church. Learn how you can attend in 2023.
