So an event on diversity is being held at Westminster Central Methodist Hall who don’t currently recognise marriage equality.
The Methodist's current definition says marriage is "intended to be a permanent relationship between a man and a woman...“ and whilst there is consent in principle to the marriage of same-sex couples on Methodist's premises (following a vote at their conference last July), this won't happen until a vote at their conference in July of this year passes the policy.

Sharon, thank you for your comment. We had originally booked to hold this event at the BEIS Conference Centre but were decanted due to BEIS needing to use the Conference Centre for Brexit work. However, Government event organisers and service providers are often grateful to use premises provided by commercial, other public sector or 3rd sector owners. Use does not imply endorsement of every opinion held by the owner. We respect freedom of belief and expression and the right to hold different views. Methodists are entitled to have their debate about the nature of marriage, as are all other faith groups.
