The Methodist Church: February 2019
2019 marks the 350th anniversary of the birth of Susanna Wesley, "the mother of Methodism".
Although most known for her influence on her sons John and Charles, Susanna deserves recognition in her own right as an accomplished writer, teacher and theologian.
A selection of her writings will be published this spring, and celebratory events are planned throughout the anniversary year. More information will become available on www.methodistheritage.org.uk.
