The international dialogue between Anglicans and Methodists had its beginning in the Lambeth Conference of 1988. The invitation by the Anglican bishops to begin formal conversations was enthusiastically accepted by the World Methodist Council. This first phase of dialogue culminated in the report Sharing in the Apostolic Communion 1996. The second phase ran from 2009 to 2013, and resulted in the report Into All The World: Being and Becoming Apostolic Churches (2014).
