Church of England and Methodist Church meet at Ampleforth Abbey
Coming together for the first time on a formal basis, the group recognised that the two churches are moving towards new working relationships. The talks covered their common mission through the ministry of word, sacrament and pastoral care. It considered the changing social and cultural context and the Church's commitment to serve all parts of the nation at every level.
The group experienced a high degree of consensus. Their discussions were part of the continuing growth in collaboration and fellowship between the two churches.
