WikiProject Christianity: Methodism Work Group

John Wesley

Welcome to the Methodism work group of the Christianity WikiProject! This work group centers around Wikipedia articles about the religious organization known as Methodism. All editors interested in Methodism are invited and encouraged to participate. We aim to create and maintain articles that are both well referenced and in a neutral point of view, keeping them at the level of quality Wikipedia intends all articles to be. The group will also serve for centralized discussion and collaboration about such articles.


  • Tag all articles relevant to the work group with {{ChristianityWikiProject|class=|importance=|methodism-work-group=yes}}.
  • Find editors who have shown interest in this subject and ask them to take a look here.
  • Identify articles for creation
  • Identify articles for improvement
  • Add all articles related to this group to the Category:Methodism or one of its subcategories, as well as to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/Methodism work group/Articles page by category.
  • Review importance and quality of existing articles
  • Use the recent changes function to check these articles for vandalism, improvements, and other changes.
  • Help ensure that the most central articles relating to Methodism, such as those discussed individually in other reference books, are also discussed here. A list of articles found in other reference works on Methodism can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/Methodism work group/Missing articles.

Article assessments

Any articles that are within the scope of this project should be tagged with the project banners of WikiProject Christianity. You may also find {{WikiProjectBanners}} useful. To each of these banners, you should add methodism-work-group=yes as this will automatically put the page in the appropriate categories, such as Category:Methodism work group articles.
