Talk: A Life Remembered: A Yorkshire Missionary to China
19 September 2022
Join Jane Ashby at Lotherton and hear the story of George Piercy who founded a Wesleyan Methodist Mission in Canton, China.
Jane will bring her talk to life with family slides, an embroidered jacket, a Tea Caddy, and George’s bible.
Despite hostility, war, and disease, George and his family stayed in Canton for over 30 years. People from the local area in China remember him to this day, an extraordinary feat for a famer’s son from Yorkshire.
