Welcome to the Spring 2013 edition of Heritage News

We present, once again, a wide range of initiatives from across Methodist Heritage – and all are using that heritage for mission.

Our new online community archives are encouraging people to consider the impact of faith in their family trees, while the new museum at Wesley’s Chapel is taking shape to reach out to new audiences with our story.

Find out why John Wesley preferred the octagonal design for his preaching houses, and thought them most effective for mission.

Our cover story is the bicentenary of the inauguration of the Leeds District Methodist Missionary Society – the 'foundation stone’ of the Methodist Missionary Society and of outreach and partnership in mission by Methodist people worldwide. A mission which we continue today through our worldwide heritage.

Methodist Heritage Officer
