Wesley st pauls

Seventeenth-century Anglican cathedral where John Wesley worshipped in the chancel on 24, 25 and 26 May of Whit Week in 1738. (This area is not normally open to the public, but groups are admitted on appropriate occasions.)

A statue of John Wesley stands in the northwest corner of the churchyard. Erected in 1988, it is a bronze cast of Manning's early 19th century marble statue to be found at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster. It's height is true to life at 5 foot 1 inches tall, Wesley's height. He is depicted wearing a cassock and holding a bible in his left hand. An inscription on the front of the plinth reads:

By Grace ye are saved through Faith John Wesley, Father of Methodism, 1703–1791, priest, poet, teacher of the Faith.
