Research Seminars

John Wesley preached and wrote about the ‘great importance’ of understanding the ‘fundamental doctrines’ of Christianity. In this series of studies, we look at three essential themes: sin, justification and new birth. Each session will explore the theme by using one of John Wesley’s published sermons, and include conversation with Methodist theologians from around the world.

This is a fremium event. You can join the 90 minute seminars online for free, by using the Zoom links below. Or you can sign up to the whole course below to receive a specially edited version of the seminars, along with supporting study material.
