Joint statement with the Board of Deputies

Representatives of The Board of Deputies, and the Methodist Church met today to continue conversations stretching back over a number of years. They discussed issues around the Israel-Palestine conflict, including the 2013 Conference decision to seek opinions on the BDS movement.

The Board of Deputies' representatives expressed strong concerns about the premise and the processes around this report. These concerns were heard by Methodist Church colleagues.

The Board and the Church agreed to explore approaches, distinct from the BDS consultation on which the Methodist Church is presently engaged, including investing in peace, dialogue and reconciliation projects. The Board and the Church will work collaboratively in this aim, alongside other interested parties.
