Image via WikipediaI came across this document the other day, a glossary of Church of England terms. It was written a few years after the Anglican Methodist Covenant as a guide for Methodist partners.
So, if you have ever wondered what on earth a conventional district is supposed to be, here is your opportunity to find out.
I note though there is no definition of a Peculiar. Those who are aficionados of the Parish of Theakston will, I am sure, be most disappointed.
I am sure at some stage work was done on a similar glossary of Methodist Church terminology but I have so far been unable to locate it or track down who was compiling it.
If you have any recollection of what happened to the Methodist glossary, or if you have one you're using locally which might be shared with a wider audience, please let me know.
Amusing (and reasonably polite) definitions of Methodist or Anglican terminology are always welcome of course.
