Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Wesleyanism, or Wesleyan Methodism, is the doctrine of the Methodist Church established by John Wesley (1703-1790) who preached in Wales between 1739 and 1790. Wesleyan Methodism in Wales served both English- and Welsh-speaking communities, with parallel organisations (individual chapels linked to form Circuits, which were part of Districts). Until at least 1908, the Mount Zion Wesleyan Chapel, Llanelly Hill, Llanelli, Brecknockshire, was part of the Abergavenny Wesleyan Methodist Circuit. By 1924 it was part of the Brynmawr Circuit. In about 1963 it became part of the Abergavenny Circuit.
