Methodist Church welcomes Pope Francis

The President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference have welcomed the election of Pope Francis:

"We welcome Pope Francis' election, and offer our prayers for his papacy. Methodist people cherish their place in the worldwide Church, and the election of a Pope from outside Europe reminds us of our global mission. We look forward to our continuing joint work with our Roman Catholic sisters and brothers wherever possible. We pray that all church leaders listen to the voices of the poor and the oppressed, and speak out for justice, as we share God's love."

The Revd Dr Mark Wakelin, President of the Methodist Conference
Mike King, Vice-President of the Methodist Conference
