Welcome to My Methodist History where you can enjoy sharing photos, memories or research about anything to do with the Methodist Church since the various strands joined together in 1932.
Thank you for your comment, Roger. You can post a photo of your certificate on this site by clicking on ‘add your story’. We’ll then publish it in this section. No idea about ILB/JLB though!
Thanks for all the information about JMA including collecting boxes, medals etc. I am going through family diaries and papers and have come across a lot of things relating to JMA and your material has been really helpful in allowing me to understand what’s what! In addition to medals, I have a certificate for the years 1961 to 1969 with seals for seven of those years. I would have attached a photo as I have not seen such certificates on your site but I could not seem to attach a photo.
Finally, a question. In reference to a JMA Circuit Rally in March 1965, my grandad referred to it as ILB. Any idea what that stands for? (It could possible by JLB).
My father Rev Reg Bedford ran Morley after the war when he was minister at Salem Methodist Church, Guernsey. He later became MAYC National Secretary. My brother Alan and I visited Morley for a holiday in 1967 as teenagers with Muswell Hill Methodist Youth Club. A great place which helped to bring many young people to faith.
