A stitch in time: reuniting the Church of England and the methodists


A stitch in time: reuniting the Church of England and the methodists

Ecumenical initiative

 

Every year, in early June, John Wesley, the founder with his brother Charles of the movement that became the Methodist Church, stands on top of a roof terrace in the Piazza Sant’Angelo, looking across to St Peter’s and the Vatican.

Around him are a host of people eating, drinking, meeting, talking and laughing in celebration of his birthday: ambassadors, church leaders, academics, students, members of religious orders; Italians, British and from all over the world; Catholics, Anglicans and Methodists.
