Methodist Heritage

Methodist Heritage


‘Methodist Heritage’ is the name for the work of the Methodist Church in Britain aimed at preserving its heritage and using it as a tool for contemporary mission.

In 2008, the Methodist Church’s governing body, the Methodist Conference, received a report highlighting the value and untapped potential of the Methodist Church’s historic sites and archives. The Conference approved recommendations in that report to convene a strategic Methodist Heritage Committee and employ a Heritage Officer within the Connexional Team to coordinate and support its heritage resources.



The Methodist Heritage Committee oversees the publication of the full-colour visitors’ guide to Methodist heritage sites of historic importance, the Methodist Heritage Handbook, and supports its distribution through travel trade and Christian exhibitions, as well as directly to church congregations and visitors to Methodist Heritage sites. The Methodist Heritage Committee also publishes a newsletter twice a year: Heritage News.


One of their main activities is the mapping of Methodist Heritage sites all around the UK and Ireland. They also have a library facilitating documents about Methodist Heritage to those people interesting on researching about the topic. In 2014, they came up with a policy to help on the management of Religious Artefacts, accessible on their webpage to everyone.
