Methodist viewpoint on ecumenical dialogue

2012-01-19 Vatican Radio

As Christians around the world mark the annual week of prayer for Christian unity, we shine the spotlight on one of the oldest ecumenical dialogues, that between the Catholic Church and the World Methodist Council which began in 1967.

The Rev. Ken Howcroft is the minister at the Ponte Sant'Angelo Methodist Church in Rome and until last year served as the Ecumenical Officer for the British Methodist Church. He spoke to Susy Hodges about the events taking place to mark the week of prayer for Christian unity in Rome. He also gave her an assessment of the current state of relations between Catholics and Methodists and spoke of how "these conversations have been immensely fruitful."
