Methodist Church reflects on the nature of ministry in the 21st century
A report encouraging discussion on the future shape of the ministry of the Methodist Church has been welcomed by the Methodist Conference, the governing body of the Methodist Church, which met in Nottingham earlier this month.

The report includes a draft Conference Statement setting out the Church's understanding of ministry, as well as a discussion of questions raised over recent years and on which further work is being done. The draft Statement will now be made available widely for study and discussion, before a final draft is brought for approval to the Conference in 2020.

In its changed and changing contexts, the Methodist Church understands that the time is right : to remember those things we have said in the past that remain at the heart of our shared understanding of ministry; to rearticulate aspects of our understanding in the light of our experience and God's continuing self-revelation and to begin the process of re-visioning areas of our theology and practice as part of our ongoing response to God.
