The first Methodist service took place in Copenhagen in the summer of 1858 and some years after, in 1865, the church was officially recognized as a church by the state, and shortly after, the first church, the Jerusalem church, was inaugurated.
It took some more years to receive the official status as an independent annual conference in 1911. Due to a heavy crisis during the 1920’ies the number of members dropped dramatically. Today there are about 1300 professing members and about 1000 baptized members. The characteristics of the Danish Methodist church are: Social commitment, Gospel Choir, Scouts, children & youth work, mission in Congo and Latvia.
