An archival collection is only as successful as its donors who donate relevant materials and its volunteers who help in the work of acquisition and preservation.
The Wesley Archives & Heritage Committee meets twice a month at the Wesley Library, and welcomes your time and effort to help us remember the past so that we can build the future.
However, if you have time to spare during the day, we will be glad to get in touch with you also.
Here’s how you can help:
Donate or loan old documents, magazines, pamphlets, Sunday bulletins and other memorabilia related to the WesleMethodist Church.Share your memories about Wesley Methodist Church before the 1980s as an interviewee in a recorded interview Or put us in touch with persons who might have interesting stores to tell. For instance, if you are in contact with persons, living here or overseas, who were active in the life of the Church in its early days, do let the Committee know how to reach them.
Be a volunteer with the Oral History Programme
We need help to maintain our collection of taped interviews, transcripts and CDs.
Be a volunteer with the Archives Programme
The work involves acquiring, accessioning, sorting and maintaining our collection of publications, documents, and memorabilia, and corresponding with persons formerly worshipping in our Church who are now living overseas.
Be a volunteer with the Heritage Photograph Library
Being beneficiary to a fairly large collection of photo prints, slides and negatives that were taken a few decades ago, our biggest challenge is to identify and determine when the photos were taken, what event they were taken at, and the identities of the persons whose likenesses that have been captured.
Be a volunteer with the Heritage Exhibition Programme
Help to plan, organize themed exhibitions from time to time, research the history of our Church, compile a Visitor’s Guide to Wesley Methodist Church.
