Today, at Wesley's Chapel in London, sees the beginning of a series of services, workshops and discussions to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the partnership between the Methodist Church in Great Britain and The United Methodist Church (UMC)
Mr Swanney, Connexional Secretary of the Methodist Church in Britain said: "Marking this 50th anniversary is not only about celebrating what has been but is also taking time to imagine how our ongoing partnership could best serve the Gospel in the decades to come.
"Methodism remains a growing global movement and we both want to continue to play our part in that."
The United Methodist Church is a global denomination with 12 million members. The UMC was founded in 1968 by the union of The Methodist Church (USA) and the Evangelical United Brethren Church.
