Engages in open-air preaching

1739

Inspired by the likes of Howell Harris, Whitefield began open-air preaching to the miners of Kingswood, outside Bristol. He recalled, ‘I went upon a mount and spake to as many as came to me. There were upwards of two hundred.’ Whitefield would go on to preach hundreds of times in and around Bristol, the crowds swelling to over 10,000.
