Wesley and Winchelsea
The small gem which is Winchelsea's Wesley Chapel, has its own special atmosphere of peace, and still has the pulpit from which Wesley preached. The 'Friends of Winchelsea Methodist Chapel' organise monthly events, hold special services at times such as Easter, Ascension, Harvest and Christmas and contribute to social events in Winchelsea by holding open sessions. The Chapel can also be visited by groups or individuals by special arrangement and may be hired for seminars and for educational and other events.
The early history of Methodism in South-East Sussex starts in 1756 and after this John Wesley made many visits to the area from 1758. His first very successful visit to Winchelsea was on 30 October 1771, arriving on foot to preach to "a considerable number of serious people".
