The Methodist Conference will meet virtually this year
The Conference Business Committee met last week and agreed that the Conference should meet June 25 – July 2 2020 in order to conduct its essential business. The committee recognised that the restrictions that are likely still to be in place at the end of June mean that a virtual meeting is necessary. The committee was encouraged by the experience of the Council when it met virtually at the end of March.
Final details about the timetable are being discussed and there will be further communication with all those attending after the Council has met on 16 May.
We are particularly mindful of those for whom this is a significant Conference personally (eg ordinands and those designated for office) and hope that the Methodist people will keep them and all the representatives in their prayers.
