Methodism is a form of Protestant Christianity. Founded approximately 1740 in England, primarily by John Wesley and his brother Charles, it was an outgrowth of the Church of England. Originally very popular with lower and working class folks, Methodism evolved to become a religion of the upper classes. Some members actually worry about helping people but many are involved in good works like helping with food banks, etc. Methodism, in the United States at least, is more concerned with maintaining the status quo and ensuring excellent pensions and other benefits for church leaders. George W. Bush is a Methodist.
John Wesley, by the way, was obsessed with witches.
