There was a fire at Wesley’s Chapel on Sunday afternoon, 26th March 2017. Thankfully, the efficiency of the Emergency Services saved us from what might have been a very serious disaster. The fire was safely contained but has left us without electricity. That means we are without phones, emails, light and power. The Museum is closed. However, the Chapel and John Wesley’s House remain open for visitors and Services as usual.

As of Friday, 7th April we have had power restored to our telephone 0207 253 2262 and to our email accounts. We apologise that we may have lost some of the emails. If you are expecting a response from us, please re-send your email.


The Museum of Methodism tells the history of Methodism from John Wesley to the present day and its contribution to shaping Britain’s political and social history. John Wesley’s House stands next to the Chapel. It was his home for over a decade, and is one of the finest surviving small Georgian townhouses in London.
