Regional Methodist Historical Societies

Each Regional Society has their own constitution and a committee which arranges an interesting programme of activities, including lectures and visits to historical sites. Most of the Societies have a regular bulletin and some occasionally produce other publications.

Many of the Regional Societies have libraries containing books of Methodist interest and books of local interest. They also have valuable archive collections.

The Index to the Proceedings of the Local Branches, Volume 2, 1995-2005" is available for reference at the New Room Bristol and may be purchased from them via info@newroombristol.org.uk
