Currently the ACWR is a working partnership formed by a number of Wesleyan theological institutions, one denominational partner, and two Uniting Church library collections. Each centre provides quality resources for students and researchers in this field. We are actively seeking to enlarge our range of partners throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as further afield.

The Sugden Heritage Collections, Queen’s College
The Sugden Heritage Collections, Queen’s College are named in honour of Dr E.H. Sugden, the first Master of Queen’s College, who guided the development of the Library for over 40 years. A bibliophile, scholar, theologian and leading figure in Australian Methodism, Dr Sugden donated his own substantial collection of 18th century editions of John and Charles Wesley’s works to the college. These include twenty-four signed manuscript letters by John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, as well as other outstanding gifts of Wesley realia. This collection is of international importance and the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere. An extensive Methodist Collection of books, pamphlets, serials and manuscripts document the history and theology of Methodism in Australasia and Britain from the earliest years until the inception of The Uniting Church in Australia.
