The UMC Latvia is a district conference within the Estonia Annual Conference, but in practice it functions as an annual conference. Methodism was introduced in Latvia by German missionaries in the early 20th century and was thriving until the Soviet occupation after World War II, where all church work was banned. The Methodist church had a new start in 1991 and managed to retrieve some of the confiscated buidings. Today there are a little over 500 professing members, 11 churches, and substantial missional work among children and youth and a home for single mothers, “The Hope Centre”.
