This Sunday is Conference Sunday – the Methodist Conference is the governing body of the Methodist Church in the UK and meets from Thursday 24th June to Thursday 1st July. The first few days are the Presbyteral session, and then the Representative session begins on Saturday with the induction of the new President and Vice President.
Conference worship takes place on Sunday morning and this includes the important act of receiving ordinands into Full Connexion. They will then be Ordained at various services in the afternoon.
