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). The Newport, Stow Hill and Hill Street Circuits are part of the South Wales District. Wesleyan Methodists are known as Methodists in England and the common use of Methodist in Wales relates to the Calvinistic Methodists.
