or “Why are there so many meetings?”
Historically, the connected Methodist Church throughout the world has been referred to as ‘Connexion’ – a term dating from Wesley’s time. It celebrates and acknowledges the connectedness of all members of the body of Christ, who together make up the worldwide Christian church.
Connexion meets formally as ‘Conference’ every year for a week in the summer. This is also the time when Ministers’ Ordinations take place, as Presbyters and Deacons are ‘received into Full Connexion’. It is here that reports are presented from all the subcommittees that have been meeting during the year, and it is here that all scheduled debates and discussions take place, always in the context of worship.
