Welcome to the London District of the Methodist Church

Methodist Conference

You are here

What?

In 1744, John Wesley gathered together his assistants, both ordained and lay, to discuss what should be taught, and how it should be done. This was the birth of the Methodist Conference.

The Methodist Conference meets annually in June/July for a week, hosted by a different District or group of Districts each year, to discuss important matters and agree policy for the Methodist Church as a body. Attending are a gathering of representatives from each District (lay, ordained and deacon), along with others who have been elected including ex officio members and representatives from the Youth Assembly.
