The Holy Club
In the early eighteenth century John Wesley, Charles Wesley, and George Whitefield attended Oxford University where they formed what came to be know as “The Holy Club.”
It was a religious society built around extreme discipline.
Together they created a great stir at Oxford as they applied rigorous standards of…
- discipline in Bible study,
- prayer, and
To be part of The Holy Club you had to…
- rise very early each morning,
- carry on rigorous devotions,
- At night you had to make notes in your journal,
- You had to fast twice a week, and
- You had to visit prisoners at the Oxford jail.
