The story of Methodism in Dereham may well have begun on the very site of Trinity church! The Rev. John Wesley made over forty visits to Norfolk and passed through Dereham frequently on his travels between Norwich and King’s Lynn, along the route of the old A47. Word of his coming went ahead of him and crowds gathered to see the once abused but now venerated evangelist. He records in his journal that, on 3rd October 1788, having come from Lynn on the coach called ‘Expedition’, which held four people, “Going through Dereham about noon I was desired to preach, which I willingly did."
