This paper traces the history of presbyteral ministry in the British Methodist tradition. It begins with the Wesleys’ Methodism and the evolution of Wesley’s preachers from ‘extraordinary messengers’ to Methodist ministers. It examines nineteenth-century developments against the background of diverging Methodist traditions and explores the issues and tensions present in the Methodist union of 1932. It then considers twentieth-century official statements in greater detail, concluding with the 2002 document What is a Presbyter?
