About the 22nd World Methodist Conference

The World Methodist Conference is a global gathering of the Methodist, Wesleyan and Uniting family held every five years in a different part of the world. The Conference is organized by the World Methodist Council.

Location: The 22nd World Methodist Conference will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden

Theme: “On The Move” Organized around three sub themes – Migration, Pilgrimage and Guiding Lights

Purpose: As we navigate around these 3 themes we search for justice and peace for all the world’s inhabitants, especially those living on the fringes. The Methodist family, from its beginning has followed the example of Christ in seeking ways to serve our fellowman and love our neighbor. The Conference will give those participating an understanding of how to travel forward.

Local Hosts: The Uniting Church in Sweden with support of the Danish and Norwegian United Methodist Church.
