LIVERPOOL 200: RENEWING THE WESLEYAN VISION 


In 1820, the Wesleyan Methodist Conference met in Liverpool to launch a turnaround plan for the denomination. The Minutes of the Conference have become one of the few official historical texts of the Methodist Church in Britain printed in Volume 1 of CPD. Two hundred years later, we are desperately in need of a new turnaround plan! As we gather in Liverpool in 2020, we will renew the Wesleyan vision and begin to develop a fresh strategy, asking the same questions John Wesley asked at the first ever Methodist Conference in 1744: What to teach? How to teach? What to do? Please do everything you can to join us!  Dates to be confirmed
