Charles Simeon (1759-1836) spent 54 years as vicar of Holy Trinity in Cambridge. His early years were marked by intense opposition, but by the end of his ministry he was widely admired for his piety and powerful preaching. As a discipler of men, trainer of future clergy (in the days before theological colleges) and pioneer of the modern missionary movement, he had an incalculable impact on the Church of England and what became known as the Anglican Communion. This talk will seek to understand the nature of that influence and its enduring power today.
