The President and Vice President of the Methodist Conference visited Lambeth Palace today for a meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury. Accompanied by senior figures from both churches the President, Vice-President and Archbishop discussed matters of mutual concern and were encouraged by reports of Anglicans and Methodists working together in mission, evangelism, witness and service all over England. Their wide-ranging discussions also took in the future of Europe, prayer, evangelism and witness, and the churches’ engagement with political and public issues.

The President, Vice-President and Archbishop commended the report ‘Mission and Ministry in Covenant’ to both churches for study and reflection together. This report sets out a proposal for a full relationship of communion between the two churches and a reconciled ordained ministry, and can be found at https://www.churchofengland.org/media/4002831/mission-and-ministry-in-covenant.pdf   The proposal builds on the existing relationship between the two churches expressed in the 2003 Anglican-Methodist Covenant.
