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.
2nd October, Sunday In 1938 when he was 16 my father who lived in Brockley south London wrote this in his diary: Went to Sunday School in afternoon with Doug Latham Prayers for peace. Doug and I went forward and signed the Students Roll: – “To promise to serve Christ only”. We were carried by the Rev Arnold Bellwood’s enthusiasm. He is a violent and enthusiastic pacifist preacher, a Socialist, I am certain. Dad misses Rev Bamford’s gentlemanly preaching
this page is very moving indeed…..and also thought provoking…..’sic transit gloria mundi’…..such powerful items…now passing slowly into oblivion ……thankfully there is a photographich record at least…..
I have an old hymn book from here signed and dated 1870 by William Southall and Charles Southwell. If anyone knows any family who would like please let me know.
