John Wesley

Founder of Methodism & English Reformer

Although John Wesley is largely remembered as being the founder of the Methodist movement, which was a highly successful evangelical revival movement within the UK, his effect on Great Britain went far beyond evangelism.  

Wesley's understanding of Christianity was that individual redemption leads to social regeneration. He thought national reform and transformation should be an inevitable by-product of individual lives being transformed.  

The context within England that Wesley entered was a nation in a spiritual and moral quagmire.  One bishop at the time declared that religion and morality in Britain had collapsed "to a degree that was never before known in any Christian country."

John Wesley's legacy includes the following:

  • a library of published books including Bible commentaries and books which shaped British culture e.g. Rules for a Helper
  • English, French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew grammars
  • contributing to the liberation of women and the beginnings of workers' rights and safety in the workplace
  • he attacked slavery before the reformer William Wilberforce was born
  • fought for civil and religious freedom
  • brought awareness of the evils of exploiting the poor
  • campaigned against bribery and corruption
  • opened a medical dispensary
  • opened a bookstore
  • opened a free school
  • opened a shelter for widows
  • set up spinning and knitting shops
  • studied medicine in order to help the destitute

In addition, some historians believe that the renewal movement led by John Wesley and his brother, Charles, prevented something similar to the French Revolution taking place in England.
