Estonian Methodists leave global group after LGBT conflict

During a church meeting, 97 per cent of the attending representatives indicated their support for leaving the United Methodist Church (UMC). The reason for their leave is the progressive course the UMC seems to be taking, Dagen writes. It is not the first time that the LGBT issue threatens the unity of the United Methodist Church. In May, some conservative congregations in the United States decided to break away and form their own denomination, the Global Methodist Church. Since then, several hundred local Methodist churches have joined the new group. Already in 2022, the Estonian branch of Methodist Churches expressed the wish to leave the denomination as well, the UMC writes in a press release. At the time, they were also concerned over “the direction the denomination seems to be taking.”
