Categories: Methodist Ministers

The British Methodist Episcopal Church was a Canadian Church comprised substantially of freed or escaped American slaves in Canada. During the period in which it was formed, Canada was seeking to stop the flow of runaway American slaves. Members of the African Methodist Episocpal Church in Canada broke away and formed the British Methodist Episcopal Church in the hopes that the name would establish them in the eyes of their neighbors as Canadian.
