Friends of the Manchester Wesley Research Centre

Friends of the MWRC are supporters of the Centre and its aims.

What we offer Friends

  • Use of the MWRC library through prior arrangement with the MWRC Administrator, Director, or Nazarene Theological College librarian
  • An invitation to the MWRC Annual Lecture in Wesley Studies and other events sponsored by the MWRC; we will commit to keeping Friends notified of events at the MWRC
  • A biannual MWRC newsletter
  • Recognition on our website (for those who wish for this)

Support is needed to help sustain and further the work of the MWRC. Coordinating the work of the Centre requires the employment of a director and administrator. Our current administrator works one day per week through the joint support of our partner institutions. However, more administrative hours are needed for the Centre extend its work in the academy and church.

Our typical costs are:

Administrative costs (one day per week for one year) £3500

Cost of hosting the MWRC Annual Lecture £250

Cost of purchasing a Ph.D. thesis to aid student research £50

We invite you to become a Friend of the MWRC. We are suggesting that MWRC Friends consider giving a minimum annual donation of £30 or $50; however, you are welcome to give above this amount. If you wish to become a MWRC Friend please contact postgraduate assistant Alex Parrish at
