    The Methodist Studies Seminars is a partnership between The Oxford Centre for Methodism, (Oxford Brookes University), Manchester Wesley Research Centre (Nazarene Theological College), Wesley Study Centre (Durham University) and Wesley House (Cambridge University). The seminars provide an opportunity for established and emerging scholars of Methodist Studies to present the findings of their research and are designed to stimulate scholarship and thinking which have been shaped by Wesleyan and Methodist tradition across a wide range of theological disciplines.
