Monday, July 10, 2023 to Thursday, July 20, 2023

Add to my calendar

You are invited to a ten-day spiritual pilgrimage, walking in the footsteps of John and Charles Wesley. This journey is an opportunity to:

  • Learn, pray, worship, and explore places where the Wesley brothers encountered the living God
  • Form spiritual friendships with fellow pilgrims and Wesley scholars
  • Integrate Wesleyan theology, ministry, and missional leadership
  • Rekindle your spiritual passion

The Wesley Pilgrimage is open to all lay and clergy leaders. For ten days we will explore Epworth, the Wesley’s birthplace; Oxford, where John and Charles studied and led the Holy Club; Bristol, where the class meeting was developed and Methodism became a movement; and London, where both Wesley brothers experienced assurance of salvation. As British Methodism grew, London became the center of a new missional movement. The primary location for this pilgrimage is Salisbury, England, home to a vital Methodist congregation once served by Francis Asbury.

A limited number of scholarships are available for licensed local pastors, provisional deacons and elders, lay leaders, lay lervants, and lay speakers. The deadline for scholarship applications is January 30.
