The Pilgrims in Nantglyn
The sun shone as some fifty people enjoyed the Synod Cymru Historical Society Pilgrimage 2014 on Saturday 17 May. The pilgrims visited Denbigh, Nantglyn, Bathafarn Farm and Ruthin. The Reverend Martin Evans-Jones gave two talks, the first on the story of how the Methodist cause in Denbigh began and the second on Edward Jones of Bathafarn, a pioneer of Welsh-language Methodism. In Nantglyn, the pilgrims had the opportunity to see “The Pulpit on the Tree” where tradition tells that John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, preached, and to hold a short service in the parish church.
The Pulpit in the Tree
With generous hospitality in Denbigh and Ruthin, and good fellowship throughout the day, everyone learnt a great deal about the history of our denomination. It was a day to remember. Thank you to everyone, especially to Robin Jones of Bethel for the arrangements.
