Tresmere - Wesleys (1744-1750)

This is one of the few churches where the Wesleys were permitted to speak. It was the second church of old Mr Bennet, the other being Laneast. Charles and John spoke here around seven times; John's final visit being in 1750 when Mr Bennet died.

Charles wrote in his journal on August 7th 1744, In the afternoon Mr Meriton read prayers in Tresmere church, and I expounded the good Samaritan to a thronged audience. Some gentry were come eighteen miles to hear the word and received it with joy. We have not had a more gracious season since we came into the county.'
