Archbishop to address Methodist Conference

 

The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, will address the annual Methodist Conference on Wednesday, July 10. It will be the first time he has addressed the Conference, which this year meets at Central Hall, Westminster. 
The Archbishop was invited by the President Designate of the Methodist Conference, the Revd Ruth Gee, who is chair of the Darlington District and worked with Archbishop Justin when he was Bishop of Durham. 
Archbishop Justin will talk on the topic, Resourcing a Search for the Common Good. An oil industry executive before he entered ordained ministry, and a member of the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards, the Archbishop has written widely on the ethics of business and finance. After his talk, he will take questions from members of the Conference. 
The annual Conference is the governing body of the Methodist Church, and is made up of 308 lay and ordained full members representing all aspects of the Methodist Church in Britain, plus a number of associate members representing partner churches in Britain and worldwide. It meets in different locations each year. This year's meeting is at Central Hall Westminster from July 4-11.
