BBC: Churches and Chapels in Wales 'May Unite' "A conference in Aberystwyth will discuss the plans in response to declining funds and congregations. The event on Saturday, called The Gathering, brings together five denominations [Anglicans, Presbyterians, United Reformed, Methodists, and Baptists]." They "could ultimately share bishops, ministers and buildings." "If given the go-ahead, a new breed of bishops would be created and be interchangeable between all denominations in the united group." "A spokeswoman for the Presbyterian Church of Wales said the plans were "quite new and quite radical". "All the denominations are realising we are getting smaller numbers but we do have strengths and resources remaining so it's a case of working out how best to use the resources," she said. "For example, in some towns you might have two churches and a chapel. They might have a vicar but no-one in the chapel. If the churches united, the vicar could also serve the chapel.""
