Camp Meeting 200th Anniversary

Camp Meeting 200 Anniversary

To comemmorate the 200th anniversary of the first Camp Meeting of 31 May 1807, some of us are planning a walk from Mow Cop to Ramsor. This is a route which Hugh Bourne may have walked from time to time between preaching appointments. We hope to include services at the start and finish, as well as part way. This would reflect one of Hugh Bourne's Sundays. But we will not start quite as early. he would perhaps have started at 6a.m.
Anyone wishing to remember the start of Primitive Methodism is welcome to join with us for as much or as little of the walk as you choose.
Since 31 May 2007 is a Thursday, we think that doing our walk on that day will avoid clashing with any weekend celebrations. The details are to be finalised nearer the time. First guess at start time is 8 a.m. at Mow Cop, and hoping to finish about 7 or 8 p.m. at Ramsor. It would be nice if we can produce a hymn book with some of the early Camp Meeting songs and a selection from the first Primitive Methodist Hymn Book, to use on this day.
Watch out for further details nearer the time, and spring 2007 we will include contact information if you want to get in touch.
