Talk – All Manner of Wickedness Project
Barnsley Archives has been awarded funding to make available the records of the many Nonconformist churches in the Barnsley area. We invite you to come and listen to members of the project team who will describe the rich history contained in the records and how they can be used for local, family and social history research. The title of the project refers to a visit to Barnsley made by Methodist Church founder John Wesley in the 18th century. He claimed to have found ‘all manner of wickedness’ in Barnsley on his arrival, but then joyfully reported that Methodism had been embraced by the town.
