John Wesley commemorated

Back in 2003 members of the Methodist Philatelic Society worked hard, but unsuccessfully, at trying to persuade Royal Mail to mark the 300th Anniversary of John Wesley's birth.

It's nice, therefore, to see that some other postal administrations did feel this was an event worth marking. The set illustrated was issued by the Bahamas on 27th April 2004 (so a little late) and shows:
15c Methodist Church at Cupid's Cay, Governor's Harbour. 25c Church at Baillou Hill Road and Chapel Street, Grant's Town. 50c Wooden church at Marsh Harbour. 65c Ebenezer Methodist Church. 70c Trinity Methodist Church. 80c Portrait of John Wesley by Antonius Roberts.
