ABOUT GUNWEN METHODIST CHURCH

Gunwen Methodist Church was built 1869. Gunwen is not our easiest church to find. It lies two miles north of Luxulyan adjacent to Breney Common Nature Reserve and looks towards Helman Tor. It’s lovely country for a picnic.

In 1789 William O’Bryan was born at Gunwen. He became a Methodist preacher but in 1815 formed what became The Bible Christian Church. The Bible Christians were strongest in Cornwall, Devon and the Channel Islands though they had a worldwide vision and sent missionaries to China. Among these was Rev Sam Pollard of Camelford who was to witness a mass conversion to Christianity among the minority tribes of Hunan Province in South West China. William O’ Bryan died in 1868 and is buried in New York. Eventually, through church unions in 1907 and 1932 the Bible Christians became united with the mainstream Methodist Church. If you want a real challenge, then find us at Gunwen for Sunday Morning Worship. THERE IS A REWARD: You will receive a welcome from some of the friendliest people you could hope to meet.
