+ The coming of non-conformity, its diversity and the importance of John Wesley and Methodism in today’s Cornwall

The arrival of non-conformity brought Christianity into the heart of communities and by contrast made the established Church appear stuffy and spiritless. Methodism became particularly widespread in mining and fishing communities evidenced by the large number of chapels still in existence in settlements across Cornwall today.

Key Stage Two pupils will explore the diverse strands of non-conformism and explore their effects on Cornish life in the past and consider their continuing relevance today.
