Promoting historic links between Oxford Brookes University and the Methodist Church through archives, artworks, publications and research.
The OCMCH is part of the School of History, Philosopy and Culture, and engages with its students and research activities.
The aim of the OCMCH is to embody the historic links between Oxford Brookes University and the Methodist Church, through a programme of research activities and support for its special collections.
The OCMCH organises lectures and seminars and has a publications programme. It also works in partnership with the Manchester Wesley Research Centre.
Oxford has a rich past in relation to the church. It can claim to be the birthplace of Methodism where John and Charles Wesley’s small ‘religious society’ first met from 1730.
