Methodist Conference 2020

The Conference is the governing body of the Methodist Church and meets annually to discuss matters affecting the life of the Church, the nation and the world. The Methodist Council agreed that the Conference cannot meet as planned in Telford this year and so it is meeting online.

The Revd Richard Teal and Carolyn Lawrence were inducted as President and Vice-President at the Methodist Conference on Saturday 27 June 2020 .

ChairRichard is a Methodist presbyter and was brought up in a small Yorkshire Dales village, where his father was a farmer. After leaving school, Richard worked in textile management and during that time he candidated for the Methodist ministry. He attended Wesley College, Bristol, and left a year early due to the shortage of presbyters at that time. Carolyn has a background in primary education and was an educational mission partner in Guyana with the Methodist Church in the Caribbean and Americas. Since returning to the UK, she has worked in a voluntary capacity within the Methodist Church as a preacher and leader. More recently she has worked with the Global Relationships team of the Methodist Church helping to engage people with our worldwide network of Partner Churches.
