Methodism is a Church of two official languages: English and Welsh. Methodists in Britain have many languages. We have ‘Fellowships’, ‘Congregations’ and ‘Churches’ who worship and fellowship in several languages: For more information please contact leaon@methodistchurch.org.uk

We will do our best to provide all of our publications in as many formats and languages as required in order to make their content accessible to as many people as possible.

For a different format or language (for yourself or somebody else to be able to access) please contact publishing@methodistchurch.org.uk

When we talk, lead worship, preach or write we aim to put up no barriers for those who might want to hear or read of the good news of Jesus Christ, in our conversations, our worship or our fellowship with one another. Our Methodist Inclusive Language Guide is available to help us all think about the language we use.

One way of reminding ourselves that God has spoken to, and through, all cultures in all languages is that we can encourage the use of different languages in worship. At its most simple that might include inviting people to pray the Lord’s Prayer in their first language, whether that be English, Welsh, Farsi, Swahili, or whatever you learned first. The rich sound will remind us of the first Pentecost!
