Meet David Worthington who is
Speaking on The New Room, Bristol,
The Oldest Methodist Building in the World (1739) 

Tuesday  September 26
11:30 am to 12:30 pm 
Prothro Hall, Room 106 
and on Zoom


David Worthington served as Superintendent of the New Room and now serves as its Director of Global Relations.  Perkins students who have participated in our Wesley Heritage Tour in England have met David Worthington, who leads our students in their tour of Wesley heritage sites in England. Methodists can learn a lot from the New Room: it was built as a “preaching place,” not a church, because the early Methodists attended the Church of England nearby. He also leads tour to the Bristol home of Charles Wesley, just a few blocks away from the New Room. Please join us to learn about the New Room. Then, sign up for our Wesley Heritage Tour of England.
The next offering will be in the summer of 2025 under the leadership of the
(by then retired and happy), Ted Campbell.
