Ordinations April 2021
The ordination services which were due to take place at the Conference in June 2020, have now been rearranged.
There will be three ordination services held on Sunday 18 April 2021.
3pm at Wesley’s Chapel, London for the diaconal ordinations.
3pm and 6pm at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster for the presbyteral ordinations.
Ordination tickets have been released in anticipation of being able to hold services with the venues at capacity. However, as the numbers attending may need to be limited in accordance with Corona regulations at the time, please be aware that reserving a ticket now does not necessarily guarantee attendance.
With this in mind, please check cancellation policies for any hotel bookings and travel arrangements that you may be making and build in as much flexibility as possible when making bookings should restrictions need to be imposed.
