This preaching plan for the autumn and winter of 1854/55 is printed on fine glazed cotton. It may have been a commemorative or presentation plan. The plan shows all the Wesleyan preaching appointments in the Liverpool North Circuit, which, at the time, consisted of 10 places of worship.

A characteristic feature of Methodism is its methodical structure and the provision of preaching and prayer meeting plans. The plans are essentially a diary of prayer and preaching appointments for preachers and other prayer and worship leaders working within a Methodist 'circuit', or defined groupings of chapels.
