The Methodist Church in Britain is pleased to announce that, from the start of April, the new Director of Global Relationships will be the Revd Conrad Hicks.
Currently Assistant Chair of the South East district and a presbyter in the Hants-Surrey Border circuit, Conrad brings a wide range of world church experience. He has been a mission partner in Jamaica, a medium-term volunteer in Mexico, served as a superintendent minister with the Methodist Church in Ireland and as a companion of the British and Irish Methodist Churches to the Methodist Church in Guatemala.
Conrad joins the team at a time of significant development, with other new colleagues having been recently appointed, enabling a renewed focus for the World Church Relationships team as they serve the needs of the British and Irish Church and our world church partners. He brings fresh vision, deep understanding of how we learn and share with our world partners today and a focus to enable British Methodism to fully live out our calling to One Mission.
Conrad commented: ‘‘It has been an enormous privilege to serve in different parts of the World Church, alongside sisters and brothers whose discipleship is humbling and inspiring. I am excited about working with global partners, colleagues in the World Church Relationships Team and across the Connexion, as we pursue God’s call to engage in mission globally and locally, seeing churches, communities and lives transformed.”
