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). Vale Terrace Methodist Church in Tredegar, Blaeanau Gwent, was opened in 1876 and was part of the Ebbw Vale Circuit, which became the Ebbw Vale and Tredegar Circuit in 1983.
