Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the concept and practice of the ‘means of grace’, which have been central to Methodist spirituality and theology since the earliest years of the evangelical revival under the leadership of John and Charles Wesley. Methodist or Wesleyan spirituality is sometimes described as a distinctive combination of evangelical and sacramental spiritual practices, and for this reason the means of grace play a central role as historic forms of piety in the spirituality of historic Wesleyan and Methodist communities.

Keywords: Methodism, Methodist spirituality, Wesleyan spirituality, theology, piety
