Like in the rest of Scandinavia, Swedish Methodism began in the late 19th century, and in 1868, the Swedish Methodist church was established. In the early 20th century, Sweden hosted one of the largest Methodist conferences in Europe.
In 2012, the Annual Conference in Sweden left the connection and merged with the Baptist Church of Sweden and the Mission Covenant Church of Sweden, and created a new denomination, The Uniting Church in Sweden (Equmeniakyrkan).
Two congregations, Östersund and Laxå, decided to remain within the UMC and are a district of the Swedish speaking Finnish Annual Conference
