CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Wesleyanism, or Wesleyan Methodism, is the doctrine of the Methodist Church established by John Wesley (1703-1790) who preached in Wales between 1739 and 1790. Wesleyan Methodism in Wales served both English- and Welsh-speaking communities, with parallel organisations (individual chapels linked to form Circuits, which were part of Districts). Varteg Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was in Abersychan, Monmouthshire, Earl Street Wesleyan Chapel, Garndiffaith, Monmouthshire and Bethel Methodist Church, Garndiffaith, were all part of the Pontypool Circuit.
