    John Wesley Chapel, Bristol

    July 20, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    The New Room, the oldest Methodist building in the world, was built in 1739. It was too small and not well-built, so it was rebuilt and enlarged in 1748. Except for the pews, it is the same as then. At that time, men and women sat separately on benches. There was no organ, but the congregation was taught the hymns in stanzas, and then they sang with enthusiasm. In other churches singing was only done by a choir or not at all. There are no windows on the ground floor, to protect against mobs.

    Wesley promoted the idea of helping the less fortunate. The New Room was a multipurpose building with a food shelf, natural medicines, a school for children, and visits to a nearby prison were arranged. Services are still held there: we attended one that day, and thought, "This is where it all began!"

    Note: The chapel was used in filming a courtroom scene for the BBC series, Poldark, season 2.

    Als deutlich weniger sehenswert empfanden wir Bristol. Die Stadt bietet wenig Interessantes. Ein absolutes Highlight an Bristol war allerdings das Treffen mit einer Schulfreundin, die ich seit über 20 Jahren nicht mehr gesehen habe. Wie der Zufall es wollte verschlug es die mittlerweile in Großbritannien lebende just an dem Tag geschäftlich nach Bristol, an dem wir auch in der Ecke waren.Read more

    This morning we had a and dash from our hotel to the Heathrow bus station; we only had 3 minutes to spare! We are staying in a very nice basement flat in Bristol. The owner lives above and has made the place very comfortable. Nicholas picked us up around lunchtime and we went to watch the rugby; I even got the boots on! We have just returned from a fantastic Italian restaurant; great food and vibe.Read more

    Nicholas had training today so we kept ourselves amused. We walked down to the harbour and had a good look around the SS Great Britain; well worth a visit if you head to Bristol. We then went on a short boat trip before heading to a lovely little pub called the Pump House; the crew on the boat recommended it. We then came home for a well earned rest before heading over to see Nicholas and Efia for pizza. We felt very sad saying goodbye to them both.Read more

    So our last day of our trip; we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Just wish we could have stayed in Bristol longer. We spent our last few hours checking out the Museum, art gallery, climbing a tower and enjoying lunch in a little cafe in Clifton. Our host Vanessa has been lovely; I have included a picture of her with their cat Delphinium Guy Fawkes or Guido for short. On the bus for Heathrow at 3pm for the flight home. 😢Read more
