Methodist was founded as a “revival” movement of the Church of England.
Methodist became a Protestant Denomination, and spread world wide.
Burma had three kinds of Methodist Churches and schools.
- English Methodist
- Burmese Methodist
- Chinese Methodist
MEHS stands for Methodist English High School. MEHS was rebuilt after the War with the donation from the American Methodists.
MEHS is recognized as “Yangon Heritage Building”.
MEHSA is an alumni association. The web site used to have a “validation process” to vet members.
