It is fitting that the photo of Wesley Church Taranaki Street, should be on the front cover because this year the emphasis in the Journal is upon various chapters in the life of the Methodist Church in the Wellington area. This has not been achieved through deliberate planning, but by virtue of the fact that we have recieved two very fine articles centred on Wellington, one being the account of the Wesleyan Mission at Te Aro by John Roberts and the other by Arthur Olsson, encouraging us all in the art of compiling a District History.

We thank them for their contributions, as indeed we thank all who contributed to the Journal. Please remember that next year is not far away and we will be looking for further stimulating and informative articles. Now is the time to begin.

Members will also note that the publications are now being printed in Browns Bay by J G Associates. We are glad to recieve the helpful advice and the professional skill offered by John Grant. He makes the task of publishing so much easier.
