Life in a Methodist Church

Download Content

Methodism is the name given to the group of churches that came out of the Christian revival of the 18th century, led by the Wesley brothers, John and Charles.

At first, Methodists were known as troublemakers! Nowadays the church is just as ‘respectable’ as any other group of churches. The reasons they were seen as such a nuisance way back in the 18th century was because the first Methodists were passionate in their belief in God, and believed that anyone can find forgiveness by believing in Jesus Christ. The Methodist Church grew up in many poor, industrial areas of the country where alcoholism and poverty were major problems.
