Welcome to the official website of the Church of Ireland/Methodist Covenant Council. The Council continues to work towards greater unity between the Church of Ireland and the Methodist Church in Ireland by working out the promises both our traditions made to each other in the Covenant agreed in September 2002
We are fully committed, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to seeking an organic unity (including the full recognition of each others’ orders), so that we may together fulfill Christ’s call to proclaim his gospel in this part of his world. Please pray for us as we continue our dialogue.
This website is designed to provide information for those who wish to know about the progress we have made thus far, as an aid to Church of Ireland and Methodist congregations engaging with each other, and as an information centre for the Covenant Facilitators based throughout the island.
We pray that our common witness and mission will draw many to the feet of Christ in the love of God the Father.
