Summer 2015 Church, Methodism and Community: A Conference Comemorating the Bicentennial of the Death of Mary Bosanquet Fletcher (1739-1815)
The date of the conference is to be determined, but will be sometime during the summer of 2015, Manchester, England. The conference run four days and will have excursions to Cross Hall, near Leeds, Yorkshire (where Mary Bosanquet re-established herself and a community of women after her departure from Leytonstone, Essex with her companions Sarah Ryan, Sarah Crosby, and her friend Richard Taylor in June, 1768). A special exhibition concerning Mary Bosanquet Fletcher and her family is planned to be held at the John Rylands University Library of Manchester. Depending upon interest, additional excursions may be planned to Madeley, Shropshire, where Mrs. Fletcher spent the last thirty years of her life ministering to that parish. Papers presented at the conference will be published in a conference volume.
