Methodist President and Vice-President in addressing the General Synod today affirmed commitment to a covenant relationship with the Church of England.
“We are prepared to be changed as a Church if that will serve the needs of the Kingdom.”
The President and the Vice-President of the Methodist Conference addressed the Church of England’s General Synod this morning, expressing the Methodist Church’s commitment to a covenant relationship with the Church of England and answering questions from synod members in a discussion following their address.
Revd David Gamble and Dr Richard Vautrey said that the Covenant relationship was a “serious, deeply committed relationship” and “not an irrelevant extra”. They said that responses to the challenges of the Covenant should be driven by a desire for mission.
