The Wesley Guild was the concept of Reverend W.B. Fitzgerald in the late 19th century and was put forward at the Liverpool Conference in 1896 by Reverend Charles Kelly. The Guild's original aim was to educate young people and improve the body, mind and spirit and provided activities such as camping, cycling and holiday clubs.
The London Guild Council was established in 1899 and functioned to bring together London's local guilds and promote joint projects. The most important event was the London Guilds Rally which was held for many years in the Central Hall, Westminster. The rally included various talks and sometimes a public speaking contest. The council was wound up on 31 October 2011.
