An important feature of the life of the Charles Wesley Society is its annual meeting. At these gatherings, members and non-members alike present and listen to presentations and papers which seek to interpret and promote the life and work of Charles Wesley. While the preponderance of these meetings are held in the United States, changing location from year to year, every few years the meeting’s location rotates to Europe and is often scheduled to make attendance at another conference easy for prospective participants.
