Wesley England Trip 2018
Have you ever wanted to walk where John Wesley walked? . . . visit the spot where his heart was “strangely warmed”? . . . see where he preached to those first “Methodists”? . . . sing in the places where Charles Wesley wrote the great hymns of our faith? . . . visit the town where Susanna and Samuel Wesley raised their family? Would you like to make this journey with friends from Williamsburg United Methodist Church? Rev Bill Jones and Randy Casey-Rutland are leading a Wesley Heritage educational trip to England in May 2018. You are invited to join us.
Bill and Randy are partnering with Educational Opportunities (www.eo.travelwithus.com) to offer a spiritually nourishing, informative, and enjoyable trip to visit Epworth, Oxford, London, and other places in England that were formative in Wesley’s life and in the early days of Methodism. We’ll depart on May 8, 2018, from Richmond - or departure can be arranged from just about anywhere so friends and family living elsewhere can join as well. We’ll stay in first class hotels, spend 7 days on professionally guided tours, worship, pray, and sing together, enjoy some free time for shopping and exploring, and depart on May 16 to return home. Or you can extend your trip with a few extra days in London or in Ireland.
The price is all-inclusive, meaning the price includes round trip airfare, deluxe motorcoach transportation, entrance fees, guided tours, first class hotel accommodations, and most meals. The all-inclusive price is $3,596 per person departing from Richmond (or $3,298 from NY). A $150 discount per person is offered for registrations received by July 9, 2017 and a $100 per person discount for registrations received by August 9.

For decades, Educational Opportunities (EO) has been leading church tours to the Holy Land and other religiously significant sites. A group from WUMC traveled with EO in the Fall of 2016 to Greece, Rome, Ephesus, and Israel. It was a wonderful experience, not only as a pilgrimage to the lands of the Bible, but also as an opportunity to build lasting relationships as we learned and grew together.
Bill and Randy would love to have you join the tour of Wesley’s England. Pick up a brochure. Talk with your friends. Ask us for details. And get ready to explore our Methodist heritage through a trip to 21st century England.
