    A talk by John Anderson

    Charles Shaw's autobiography, When I was a Child, with its dominant themes of education and child labour, covers the years from his birth in 1832 in Tunstall in the Potteries until 1853 when he was accepted into the ministry of the Methodist New Connexion. From his own experiences he gives vivid account of social and industrial life of the Potteries in the 1830s and 40s, which enables us set the story of Primitive Methodism in this period in its context.

    Dr Jeremy Crump (De Montfort University) traces the Primitive Methodist missionary effort in Africa and evaluates the impact of missionary work on the host communities and on the Connexion back in the UK. Drawing on the very rich collection of correspondence between missionaries and the General Missionary Committee in the archive of the School of Oriental and African Studies, as well as missionary memoirs and the Connexional press, the talk examines the careers of the African ministers William Napoleon Barleycorn and John Msikinya and draws conclusions about the part which the Primitive Methodist missions played in the establishment of colonial society.

    Did the Primitive Methodist Arthur Samuel Peake, the Wesleyan Joseph Agar Beet, and others, by enabling their students to accept biblical criticism and by adapting tradition to modern insights, help to take Methodism forward into the 20th century and beyond or merely drive the first nails into its coffin?

    There will be talks by Rev Dr Martin Wellings, Oxford Memorial Church, Methodist historian (Wesleyan Methodism); David Young, author of Change and Decay (Primitive Methodism); Rev Simon Sutcliffe, Queen's Theological College, Immerse community (Methodist Church today).
