Selina, Countess of Huntingdon was a powerful force for good in the religious revival of the 18th century. In 1739, Lady Huntington joined the first Methodist society in Fetter Lane, London. She supported the work of John Wesley and George Whitefield, she founded many Chapels in England and Wales.In 1768 she founded a ministers training college at Trefeca.
John Henry Newman, commented She devoted herself, her means, her time, her thoughts, to the cause of Christ. She did not spend her money on herself; she did not allow the homage paid to her rank to remain with herself. She was clearly a pivotal figure in the Evangelical Revival.
