Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
             STATUS OF METHODISM  AND CHRISTIANITY.     137

    The Welsh Calvinistic Methodists who are Presbyterian in their
form of government, have 1,439 places of worship and 134,239 com-
municants.
    In Scotland the Established Kirk claims to have about half the
population; but the communicants last year were just over half-a-mil-
lion.  The Free Church has more than a thousand churches, and the
United Presbyterians in England and Ireland 369 churches.
    In Ireland about four-fifths of the population are Roman Cath-
olics.  There are also in England and Scotland 2,000,000 Roman
Catholics.  The Protestant Church of Ireland has 1,230 benefices,
1,615 clergy, and 702,041 adherents.  The Protestant Church num-
bers 485,503, and the Methodist Church 25,652 members.
    The minor religious sects in the United Kingdom are more
numerous than influential.  But the statement would be incomplete
without reference to the most recent and successful religious move-
ment--the Salvation Army--with its 9,560 officers and 500,000 en-
rolled soldiers, occupying 32 countries, and using 35 languages.
                       THE NUMERICAL  TEST.
    The tables of statistics which I have appended to this paper show
the progress made in Great Britain since the last (Ecumenical Confer-
ence.
Wesleyans ............ 486,950  members;  increase in ten years  21.2

Independent ........     6,212     "        "          "          35.3

    During the decade the population of England has increased 11.7
per cent., and the increase in the membership of the Methodist
Churches has been 19.0 per cent.
