Recently, I paid a visit to John
Wesley's Chapel ( The New Room) Broadmead, Bristol. Before I came
to Bristol, a friend of mine told me about this Chapel. It is allocated
in the City Centre. I passed by this Chapel at least 50 times now, but
I never take any step to pay a visit of this Chapel until Friday the 14/5/1999.
This Chapel is the first Methodist Chapel in the world. It was formed
in the year 1739.
John Wesley was a priet in the Church of England. He came to Bristol in 1739 and started preaching to the poor in the open air ( You can still see people preaching in the open air now a day). Wesley gathered those who responded into religious societies which met in people's homes. Within weeks their numbers had increased so much that a new meeting place was needed. He bought a small patch of land and built what he call ' our new room in the Horsefair'. It was used as a dispensary and schoolroom for the poor as well as meetings and worship. It is still known today by Methodists as 'the New Room'.
John's brother, Chrles, was also a Church of England priest. Charles is considered by many to be the world's greatest ever hymnwriter. Their shared mission was to take their Christian faith to the unchurches and especially to the poor who were often neglected by the Established Church.
