Admin HistoryWoodmancote Church, formerly Woodmancote Free Church, belongs to the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, a group of evangelical churches. The Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion was founded in 1783 by Selina, Countess of Huntingdon as a result of dissension from the established church. Its members were influenced by the preaching of George Whitefield of Gloucester, a co-worker of John Wesley. Today there are 21 congregations in England and also some in Sierra Leone. Non-conformism began in Woodmancote in 1811, with affiliation to the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion taking place in about 1825. Until 1920 the congregation came under the oversight of Countess of Huntingdon's Church in North Place, Cheltenham.
