In 1784 Wesley made provision for the continuance as a corporate body after his death of the 'Yearly Conference of the People called Methodists'. He nominated 100 people and declared them to be its members and laid down the method by which their successors were to be appointed. In 1784 Wesley gave legal status to his Conference, which moved towards the legal separation of Methodism from the Anglican Church.
