The Joint Covenant Advocacy and Monitoring Group

In 2014, the Methodist Conference and the General Synod of the Church of England agreed to establish a Joint Covenant Advocacy and Monitoring Group (JCAMG) to replace the Joint Implementation Commission (JIC).

Its role is to monitor progress of faith and order conversations and other on-going work under the Covenant and advocate new initiatives; facilitate communication of Anglican–Methodist developments in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland; and report annually to the General Synod and Methodist Conference.

The Group’s annual reports are available via the following links:
