Coffee Morning Meetings 

Coffee Morning Meetings are held 9 times a year on the first Thursday of the month: March-November.

The next meeting is on Thursday 4th July 2019 at 10.15am.  The topic is "Charles - the other Wesley".   The speaker is the Rev Professor Emeritus Robert Gribben AM.  Charles Wesley (18 December 1707 – 29 March 1788) was an English leader of the Methodist movement, most widely known for writing about 6,500 hymns.

He composed some of the most memorable and lasting hymns of the church: "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "And Can It Be," "O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing," "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling," "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today," "Soldiers of Christ, Arise," and "Rejoice! the Lord Is King!"

And yet he is often referred to as the "forgotten Wesley." His brother John is considered the organizational genius behind the founding of Methodism. But without the hymns of Charles, the Methodist movement may have gone nowhere.
