Methodist Women in Britain

mwib_0.2blk

Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) is a new movement within the British Methodist Church which seeks to resource individual women and women’s groups in a variety of ways. It came into being fully at the official launch on 1st July 2011 in Southport.

MWiB was formed largely through the coming together of Women’s Network and the British Unit of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women but aims to reach out beyond either of these groups.
It seeks to “offer a broader menu” for women today.  There are lots of opportunities to meet, locally, nationally or internationally, but there are also resources for individuals to use at home, at work or with their families.
MWiB remains part of the Methodist Church in Britain (MCB), has a seat at the Methodist Conference and relates to many parts of the Connexional Team, however, MWiB does not have Connexional Team staffing, nor funding from the Connexional budget.  It is self-funding and autonomous.
