Methodist Women in Britain

Methodist Women in Britain

MWiBWest Yorkshire District Womens Network

The Women’s Network of the Methodist Church aims to encourage, enable and equip women to participate fully in the life of the Church and in Society.

It does this through:

  • Training in specific skills
  • Conferences and events on issues and themes
  • Different styles of worship and ideas for worship
  • Campaigns in which women may be actively involved
  • Provision of information about other groups and resources
  • Mutual support through all of the above

More information about the national work of Network can be found on the Network page of the Methodist Church website.

More than a Meeting

Many women seem to feel that Methodist Women in Britain is not for them because they do not attend a women’s meeting. MWiB is a movement that is there for all women. There are opportunities for meetings in some circuits, the District and at Connexional level but going to one is not dependent on ‘belonging’ to another. Pick up one of the leaflets or go onto the website mwib.org.uk and see what is on offer in the way of opportunities for learning, worship and other resources.
