Experience what life was like in 18th century London.
Built in the late 1700s John Wesley’s House provides an accurate experience of the architecture, furniture and everyday living of someone at this period in history.
Radical Islington – Slavery and the Abolition
Learn about the rise of the slave trade from the 1500s through to the formation of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the abolition. Pupils are asked to think about what it means to be a slave as they handle replica objects and look at items in our museum. They will also learn how John Wesley and Methodism became involved in the campaign to abolish it and slavery in our world today.
This programme will bring Wesley’s Chapel alive for your students.
As a current place of worship and the very roots of Methodist heritage the site will help students understand why the faith was founded in the 1700s, why it is still practised today and how it differs from other forms of Christianity.
