Our Vision is to:

  • Engage children, women and men with an inclusive, empowering and life changing gospel.
  • Challenge the church to look at what it means to be a community following Jesus. 
  • Use our heritage as a ‘safe space’ to explore how our 21st century world has been shaped by the faith of our ancestors and what it means for us today.

Our Story
Englesea Brook Museum was founded in 1986.  It is one of four national heritage sites supported by the Methodist Church for mission.  It holds about 7,000 objects linked to the 19th century working class revival known as Primitive Methodism, which began in our District and spread worldwide.  Women went out as ministers from 1816.  Local preachers became trade union leaders, and the first working class MPs.

We offer:

  • Programmes for schools
  • Talks and tours
  • Quiet Days
  • Soup and Study groups
  • Resource for churches e.g. house groups
  • Research facilities
  • Tea, coffee and cakes

How can I support the project?

  • You might like to help with school visits, in the tea room, or give talks and tours.
  • If you have basic IT skills you might enjoy helping develop our community archive.
  • If you love books, we need help to raise funds through the book sales at Hassall Road on a Friday (10:00am-2:00pm) or Saturday morning (10:00am-1:00pm).
  • You could pray for the project as we seek to use Heritage for Mission.  You might find it helpful to use the Programme of Events to pray for specific activities.
  • Bring a friend to see the exhibitions, come to a heritage service, or a Quiet Day.
