Henry Ford, often quoted unfairly out of context, said: "History is bunk". As a general statement this is manifestly false. Without our history we should not exist and without historians to record it, we should be greatly impoverished. So I am grateful to Ian Grant for his painstaking research into all that made the Nottingham Central Methodist Mission what it was and has become.
Rev Brian Greet
I was present at many meetings where various possible schemes were considered; and when conversations began between representatives of the Albert Hall and Parliament Street, I was involved in those too. The joining of the two congregations in the beautifully refurbished premises in Parliament Street was a triumph of grace and faith. I shall never forget that great Covenant Service on 8th January 1989, which I shared with dear Joe Gibbon, and which effectively 'began' services in the newly established headquarters of the Mission.
I commend this book. Its title could mislead those who do not know John Wesley. The Gospel which saved eighteenth century England was not a narrow, inward-looking individualism. Wesley also said: "We speak of a faith productive of good works and all holiness", and "There is no holiness but social holiness". The history of the Nottingham Central Methodist Mission expounds these inseparable truths and remains, today, committed to the proclamation of the whole Gospel for all people in the entire community and throughout the world.
Thank you to Ian
Grant for reminding us of our heritage and stimulating us afresh to serve
the present age.
