York (1759)

Sun. June 15. — I began reading to the society an account of the late work of God at Everton, but I could not get through. At first, there were only silent tears on every side, but it was not long before several were unable to refrain from weeping aloud: And quickly a stout young man dropped down, and roared as in the agonies of death. I did not attempt to read any farther, but began wrestling with God in prayer. We continued herein till near nine o’clock. What a day of Jubilee was this!

From John Wesley's Journal 15th June 1759.

Additional Information

I assume that the meeting was here. The church opened in 1759 and it is likely that John Wesley did the opening service.
