The appeal of Methodism over three centuries persists here. The simple doctrine of justification through faith and instant salvation. An important message bringing comfort hope and security in an increasingly uncertain fragile dangerous world. No wonder that there were once more than a thousand chapels in Cornwall and West Devon.
