Friday (27th) afternoon:
Meet at 1.30pm at the wall map on by Victoria Station, Victoria Station Approach, Manchester for a guided walk ‘Manchester’s Religious History’. There will be a separate charge of £8.00 for this visit.

Friday (27th) evening:
We will be meeting up on Friday evening for a meal @ 19:30 in the Premier Inn Restaurant, TableTable. There is no need to pre-order as we have done in previous years, although we do need to pre-book the table so we need to know how many people want to join in.

Those of you who joined us on the Friday evening in previous years will know what a success this was, as it is a chance to meet, chat and relax with friends. Once we have a list of attendees, we will be co-ordinating the evening meal choices.

For those who are extending their stay, we recommend a visit to the John Rylands Library, which holds significant collections of records relating to the various branches of Methodism.

Saturday (28th) Programme
The programme of talks is still being finalised, but speakers and subjects will include:

  • Researching Methodists and Methodism – Owen Roberts, Methodist Heritage Officer
  • the Role Of the Local Church Of England & Non-Conformist Churches In Concientious Objection In WW1 – Janet Barrie
  • Toleration or Turmoil: The impact of non-conformity on our ancestors and their communities – Dr. Janet Few
