Covenant with the Methodists

Under the Covenant  between the Methodist Church in Ireland and the Church of Ireland it has been agreed to welcome one another's members to receive Holy Communion and other ministries as appropriate.

Following a "pulpit exchange" between Lisburn Road Methodist Church and St John's Malone in Spring 2003, a group of about twenty parishoners from St John's attended a service of Holy Communion in Lisburn Road Methodist church. This was followed a few weeks later by a group of Methodists attending Sung Eucharist in St John's

"Rejoice the Lord is King"

The next coming together was to celebrate the  Covenant  by singing the hymns of Charles Wesley. The hymns were introduced by Rev Charles Eyre, Dr Donald Davison was the organist, and Dr Harry Grindle conducted the choir and congregation. Mr William Adair spoke on the Anglican Perspective. 

At this service framed copies of the Covenant  were exchanged to be displayed in the porches of the churches.
