1st April 2022 will mark the start of our celebrations of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Hugh Bourne, one of the founders of Primitive Methodism. We are marking his birth and the year that follows with a series of specially curated events, talks and services aimed at marking the life of Hugh Bourne and his contribution to Primitive Methodism. The events will take place at various important sites and locations, including here at the Englesea Brook Chapel and Museum, and online, so as to allow those living or working further afield or unable to travel to be fully involved in the celebrations. We hope that these events will be of interest both to those already familiar with the work of Hugh Bourne and those for whom this will be their introduction. Please take a look at the list below to see if there is any activity that might be of interest to you. You can also download a copy of the programme in PDF format – though remember that it is provisional – to print out for easy reference. All are welcome to join us in our celebrations.
