Our story


Calvinistic Methodists


The origin of our church goes back to the eighteenth century Revival in Wales which God brought about through the conversions of men like Howell Harris, William Williams (who wrote over a 1,000 hymns) and Daniel Rowland.  Four hundred fellowships of Christians were set up all over Wales which for a while remained part of the Church of England.

However, in 1823 there was the setting up of a separate church, the Calvinistic Methodist Church of Wales, based on their Confession of Faith (1823), and key developments, such as the building and staffing of a training college in Trevecca, and the financial support of the Countess of Huntington.
