Methodist Women in Britain

Methodist Women in Britain is a movement within the Methodist Church, led by a group of volunteers and funded by donations, which aims to connect women with an interest in creative spirituality and a passion for global social justice. We hold day conferences and residential events, produce printed and online resources and engage in social justice campaigns. MWiB is about more than Methodism, more than women and more than Britain – we have strong links with the World Church, and are part of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women.

You can find out more by visiting their website.
