Thank you in anticipation of your efforts to encourage and invite all to attend the British Pageant 2017. This year’s Pageant will reach an audience of over 20,000. Those who attended the Pageant in 2013 were impressed with the quality of the production and the spirit of unity evident in the production and pre show activities, attesting that the experience strengthened families, built testimonies, fostered personal growth and created unity, as they served each other and reached out to members and friends.

John and Jane Benbow

It was the Benbow’s home that provided Elder Wilford Woodruff his first preaching location in Herefordshire. This was particularly important because of John Benbow’s connection to the United Brethren, a break-off from the Primitive Methodists. It was a connection that soon opened many other homes to Elder Woodruff. Woodruff arrived at the home of John Benbow on 4 March 1840. The next day, Wilford, accompanied by William Benbow, began to teach and meet the friends of John Benbow, at the Benbow home in Hill Farm. On 6 March 1840, John was baptised with his wife and four Methodist Ministers, who were leaders of the United Brethren, by Elder Woodruff. In the month following, Elder Woodruff baptised almost 160 persons, a consequence of members inviting their friends and family to meet with Elder Woodruff.....
