Methodist Women in Britain

MWiB Autumn mailing.


Dear All,

Welcome to this Autumn mailing from MWiB. Available to download from the website you will find:

~ The MWiB Autumn Newsletter

~ Prayer Diary September-November 2021

You may remember that last year, when our World Federation Officer Carolyn Lawrence took on the role of Vice President of the Methodist Conference, we encouraged Districts to commit to praying for her for one month during the year. This year, our incoming WF Officer Barbara Easton is also Vice President of the Conference, and we would like to encourage you to pray for her as we did for Carolyn. See attached document 'Prayer for Barbara Easton' - and do please encourage others to pray during your District's allocated month.

Some important announcements:

~ World Federation Day 2021 - Unfortunately, this event has had to be postponed once again due to ongoing uncertainties caused by Covid regulations and restrictions.

~ World Assembly, Gothenburg 2022 - This will now be an online event - see newsletter for further details.

~ A Methodist Way of Life - Irene Hayes (the new Communications Coordinator) is inviting women around the Connexion to join her via Zoom to explore 'A Methodist Way of Life' - see page one of the newsletter for further details.

Please feel free to forward any or all of this information to others in your District.

And finally, this will be my last communication with you as I'll be handing over the Communications role this week to Irene Hayes, and the website and social media role to Amy Walters. You can contact Irene on this email address, and Amy can be emailed at:   

Thanks for the support you've shown me over the last five years, and for your continuing support for MWiB.

Best wishes

Judith R Simms
Communications Officer

Currently 5 circuits of this district that are involved in MWiB are Bolton, Farnworth and Worsley, Bury, Leigh and Hindley and Wigan.

We remain keen to embrace all circuits to discover what MWiB has to offer as an interesting, stimulating and exciting movement, “concerned to know Christ and make him known”, through creative spirituality and support for women world wide.

If you have internet access do have a look at the web-site 

MWiB is a registered charity, governed by 31 district forum reps and 5 executives, all volunteers.

A pack of Spiritual and Practical resources for Dementia Friendly Churches, was launched by MWiB two years ago and is still available.

Our District MWiB have contributed and had Fund Raising events, towards a National effort to help the Dalit women and girls of Northern India, the money raised has been used to build and fund a school especially for these girls.

The women involved in District and Circuit events organise the Easter offering envelope collection, and organise the Circuit services as part of the Easter offering events.

Our District MWiB meet four times a year, January and June are our Business meetings and all are welcome, the District days are twice a year in March and October - next year will also include a Summer Day in June. These take place at various churches around the district, and focus on many subjects.
