About us

The My Methodist History website was launched in December 2012 as part of a community archive network supported by the Methodist Church. The site is developed and edited by volunteers.

The aim of the project is to share information and research about every aspect of Methodist history: its early development, nineteenth-century splits and sub-denominations, overseas mission and life post re-union in 1932.

Primitive and Wesleyan Methodism are covered by our sister websites, My Primitive Methodist Ancestors and My Wesleyan Methodist Ancestors.

We are particularly keen to hear how your past is reflected in your present or shaping your future: how has your Methodist history influenced you, your family or your church community?

You can use the sites to share your stories, memories, photos, research and comments about people, places and topics. To find out how to add pages or comments click on the picture links above.
