The National Methodist Conference met at the end of June/beginning of July for its annual meeting. The Methodist Conference is made up of just over 300 people from around the connexion who decide the direction of the church each year. Following the online conference of 2020 the hybrid conference of 2021 had a lot of business to cover as important issues had been pushed back a year.The main points from conference can be found in the Conference Digest available here.
Being hybrid this years conference was again a very different experience but hopefully 2022 will allow things to return a bit more to normal, or it might allow an even deeper look at the inner workings of the conference and how it can be adapted going forwards.
Whatever the future conference outcomes with the President and Vice President elected for this year and the decisions taken at Conference the future is currently looking bright for Methodism.
