For the sake of the gospel and the building up of the Kingdom, the leader of the Methodist Church in England is willing to have the Methodist Church "go out of existence" and rejoin with the Church of England:
Methodist church prepared to 'go out of existence'
From the Yorkshire Evening Post online
The Methodist Church is prepared to go "out of existence" as part of a covenant with the Church of England if this helps spread the Christian message, its leader indicated today.
The Rev David Gamble, president of the Methodist Conference, said the church would be prepared to change and even end its separate status for the sake of the "Kingdom".
"We are prepared to go out of existence not because we are declining or failing in mission, but for the sake of mission," he told the Church of England's national assembly.
"In other words, we are prepared to be changed and even to cease having a separate existence as a Church if that will serve the needs of the Kingdom."
