In 2012 a video was made by the Church of Ireland and Methodist Church in Ireland celebrating 10 years of working together under the Covenant signed in September 2002. Projects highlighted include the Church of the Good Shepherd, Monkstown, the relationship between youth departments, the work of Chaplaincy at The Hub at Queens, a shared mission in Sligo, and looking forward to the possibilities opened up by interchangeability of ministry.
Bishop Richard Clarke, Meath and Kildare CoI says the Covenant is "...not just about an ecumenical advance .... but more important it is seen as an advance of the mission of the church."
Rev Donald Kerr, Secretary of the Methodist Church in Ireland said he is "..excited about the Covenant becaus it lays out all sorts of different ways in which we are discovering what it means to belong together."
