The Covid lockdowns that began in 2020 were, and in many cases still are, a challenge to families, charities and businesses throughout the world. Englesea Brook Chapel and Museum was no exception. Our focus was on the ‘Chapel’ aspect of our work and we sought to pastorally care for our distanced staff and volunteers as we mourned the absence of the Englesea Brook community which so many value. And so began our online newsletter, ‘Englesea Extra’.
Initially a weekly, now a monthly, newsletter ‘Englesea Extra’ is produced by our staff as a way of keeping in touch with the on-going work of the museum and each other, and serves as a space where we can reflect on what our Primitive Methodist forebears might have to teach us in these strange and unsettling times. Take a look by clicking on the links below, where you will find interesting articles on local Primitive Methodist history, the latest developments on the MyPrimitiveMethodists website, unearthed treasures, ideas for parents homeschooling, book reviews, quizzes and conundrums.
