200th Anniversary of the Bible Christians
- Published on Wednesday, 01 July 2015 20:38
2015 marks the 200th anniversary of the Bible Christian movement. The movement was founded by a charismatic but erratic Wesleyan local preacher called William O'Bryan, who had a great gift for evangelism but little for organization. In October 1815, he set out on a preaching journey, starting at Week St Mary in East Cornwall and including Shebbear in Devon. At Shebbear there had been a mini-revival and here O’Bryan enlisted the Thorne family, who became the backbone of what became the Bible Christian denomination. This was always a tiny body compared to the mighty Wesleyans and its heartland was always in the South West - Cornwall, Devon and West Somerset.
To mark the Bi-Centenary a number of churches and circuits are arranging special events and as a bonus our new Methodist President, Steve Wild, will be visiting us in October. Details of all the upcoming events are available here.
