History of the Guild at Wesley Chapel Harrogate
It was announced in 1995 that ‘providing we can ‘get it off the ground’ we hope that we might be able to run a Wesley Guild during the coming winter months’.
It did ‘get off the ground’ and was at first called ‘Thursday Night at Eight’. However, this proved to be too much of a mouthful and it simply became ‘Guild’. Originally Guild met in the autumn and winter months. It became associated to The Wesley Guild, which was initially established by the Methodist Church over 100 years ago when concerns were raised about retaining young people in the Wesleyan Methodist Church.
