Adding your words and pictures

It's very easy for anyone to add words and photos to this site. Just register a username and password and off you go! You'll be guided through the process by simple on-screen instructions and it only takes 10 minutes. It's a great way to share your own Methodist stories, memories, pictures and research with the rest of the world. 

So what could you add?  

  • A photo (past or present) of a Methodist chapel
  • A story about a person or family
  • A memory of an event, e.g., Whit walk, Sunday School anniversary
  • What it means to you to be a Methodist
  • What you know about Methodism in a particular place
  • Information about any aspect of Methodism
  • Research into a particular topic, e.g., overseas missionary work

Look round this site to see what other people have added. Most people just add one photo or one paragraph of text. Others add whole photo galleries or fully referenced articles.

It's so easy!

  • You can sign in right now, create a rough draft or test page, and log in later to finish it.
  • When you're ready, you press a button to submit your words and photos to our editors for publishing

Why do I need to register and log-in?

Registering sets up your own personal part of the site. It also helps to stop rude or unacceptable material being added to the site by web browsers.

We keep your details in case the editors need to contact you, e.g. they might need to check something about your page before it goes on the main site. Your e-mail address will not be publicly available on the site and we will not pass it on to anyone else without your permission.

Contribute via email or post

We also accept submissions by email or post. If you'd prefer to contribute that way, please send your material to 

Audio and video clips

If you have audio or video recordings you would like to add to the website, please contact us for more information.
