The Oxfordshire Record Society is pleased to announce the publication of its Volume 76, Methodism in Victorian Oxford: The Oxford Wesleyan Local Preachers’ Book 1830–1902, edited by Martin Wellings.

Wesleyan Methodism was the largest Free Church denomination in Victorian Oxfordshire, with a presence in many towns and villages as well as in the City of Oxford and its growing suburbs. This new volume is a study of the growth, people and impact of that church, as evidenced in the records of the Local Preachers of the Oxford Wesleyan Circuit.

Martin Wellings is a leading historian of Methodism, and former Superintendent Minister of the Wesley Memorial Church, Oxford.
