The Moravian Church in England, 1728–1760

Having examined the Moravians' relationships with the other main figures of the English Evangelical Revival and noted their importance within the movement at large, this chapter now focuses on their own work. It highlights the differences between the Moravian Church, with its non-proselytizing stance, and Wesleyan Methodism, with which it is often bracketed. Most of the Moravian congregations had dependent societies, some of which would later become congregations themselves. The English Moravian congregations and societies can be reduced to seven groups according to their origins. The almost complete correlation between these seven areas of influence in 1760 and the locations of the thirty-two English Moravian congregations in 1994 is also striking. The Moravian Church in England in 1760 was almost entirely an agglomeration of the work of just four evangelists: Benjamin Ingham, Jacob Rogers, David Taylor, and John Cennick. Of the societies not taken over by one of these four, only the Fetter Lane Society was a Moravian foundation.
