It was founded in 1817.
The Wesleyan Methodist church was formed in the 18th century from religous societies
founded by John Wesley and his preachers. It suffered many secessions, but was the
largest Nonconformist denomination in the 19th century.
In 1932 the Wesleyan Methodists joined with the Primitive Methodists and the United
Methodists to form the Methodist Church of Great Britain.
