'Welcome Home' Development Project

We have exciting plans for the future:  our Welcome Home development project will transform the Rectory and hugely improve the visitor experience, enabling us to present to more people the inspiring stories of the Wesleys and their formative lives in this exceptional family home.

Welcome Home - project to restore the Old Rectory to its 1716 form, when it was the home for the Wesley family.

The total cost of these improvements is £2 million.  We are approaching Trusts and Foundations for their support… but above all we need your help to make it happen.’
