Using the information in the following charts, United Methodists and Episcopalians can locate one another to facilitate communication, conversation, and collaboration in mission and ministry.
The Episcopal Church consists of nine provinces, subdivided into 110 dioceses in 17 countries. Ninety-nine of the dioceses are domestic to the United States. The United Methodist Church consists of five jurisdictions in the U.S., subdivided into 46 episcopal areas, and of seven central conferences in Africa, Europe and the Philippines, subdivided into 20 episcopal areas.
The geographical boundaries of these provinces, dioceses, jurisdictions, and episcopal areas do not overlap precisely. These charts provide information about approximate equivalents for dioceses of the Episcopal Church and United Methodist jurisdictions and episcopal areas. Links from each diocese and jurisdiction point to individual websites with local contact information.
