The Wesley Fellowship.

Founded in 1985, The Wesley Fellowship is an international and inter-denominational fellowship of Christians committed to the spirit and teaching of John and Charles Wesley. The Fellowship aims to present a contemporary expression and interpretation of the evangelical doctrines taught by the Wesleys. In particular, it gives emphasis to the Wesleyan Arminian tradition in evangelical theology and the Wesleyan understanding of Christian holiness.

Paid-up members receive by post the Wesley Fellowship Bulletin (normally published in the spring and autumn) and selected lectures that are published by the Wesley Fellowship as ‘Occasional Papers’. Meetings are usually held twice a year, in April and in October, normally in Birmingham, England. They are conducted in a context of worship with the singing of (mostly) Charles Wesley hymns. The Papers are delivered on a wide range of topics, generally dealing with Wesleyan history, biography, theology and experience.

Some of the lectures and talks presented to meetings are chosen to be published by the Wesley Fellowship and given to members as ‘Occasional Papers’. Other Papers and documents (including recordings of lectures) are published by the Fellowship and made available at reasonable prices. Periodically, residential conferences are arranged by the Fellowship to facilitate the further study and experience of our rich Wesleyan heritage.

The Wesley Fellowship publicises its work and witness by various means including meetings, lectures, conferences, printed and audio publications, and its website. You are warmly invited to join with us and become part of this informative and inspiring fellowship!
