Local Preachers' Meeting

 

From the Connexial website:

What is a Methodist local preacher?

Local preachers are those who have been accredited to preach God's word and lead His people in worship. Originally, the term local preacher showed the difference between those who stayed in a local area and those who moved around the country as ministers (presbyters).  

 

The Local Preachers' Meeting is held quarterly to discuss matters relating to their role.
