Last week, I posted the photos of Wesley’s Chapel from the outside. This week brings a look into the interior of the Chapel (again, I must not have been able to take any photos of the interior of his house because I don’t have any). I have to say that I was surprised at how ornate and formal the chapel was because my experience of Methodism in Britain (in particular up to that time) was that chapels tended to be on the ‘simpler’ side. I was told by the steward that the Wesley’s Chapel represents the time it was built.
Also, there is a small chapel near the main one. It is named the Foundry Chapel after Wesley’s first base in London. I don’t know the connection to the main chapel or to Wesley (other than it’s location), but it does house Charles Wesley’s organ.
Francis Asbury (first bishop of the Methodist Church in the USA) didn’t have a memorial, but his portrait was part of a stain glass window. The photo didn’t turn out very well, so I didn’t post it.
