Who are the Wesley brothers?

John and Charles Wesley were leaders of what came to be called the Evangelical Awakening in 18th century England. Both were clergymen of the Church of England whose renewal they sought. They brought fresh and vigorous proclamation of the gospel which was welcomed by many.

Charles in the shadow of John in terms of founding the Methodist movement? Conflict with John. His poetic hymn writing gift. The role of hymns and music as a means of touching the hearts of people and shaping their theology. Key themes in Charles Wesley’s hymns? Some singing.
