The Independent Methodist Connexion is a group of churches which are situated in the North of England with others in Bristol, the midlands and at Ramsey on the Isle of Man. Most of them bear the name 'Independent Methodist', but a few have local names, often related to their origins. Each church is self-governing. The Connexion acts as a spiritual and collective focal point. The denomination is a small one which gives it a character quite different from much larger church bodies. This has the advantage of simplified administration, but the drawback of a limited national profile.
Each Year there is an Annual Meeting where all the major decisions affecting the denomination are taken by representatives from the churches.
As you read through the accompanying pages, you will find a description of the Connexion and its activities.
