This Week's News

God's planet : our responsibilities

11 September – Greenhill (Sheffield) & Zoom

Thanks to everyone who responded to our survey last week. Book your tickets now at

The global climate crisis will affect all of our communities. What responsibilities does this place on our churches? What can we do as Christians, churches and circuits? What do we contribute to a national conversation?

We would love to be joined by someone from every church in the district, not just synod members, because we can all make a difference.
Speakers include Canon Nick Jowett, Ali Dorey, Gregg Hewitt, Nick Waterfield.

District Safeguarding Update

Taken from the Connexional Safeguarding Bulletin: July 2021:

Webinar: Addressing Bullying through Justice, Dignity and Solidarity

This webinar, the third in a series of webinars looking at different approaches to tackling bullying, looked at the relationship between bullying, discrimination and exclusion. Panellists examined the intersectionality between individual, institutional and structural forms of discrimination and the role each may play in bullying. The importance of creating a supportive environment in which trust and confidence is achieved is critical to ensuring that no one suffers in silence. This webinar presented a range of inter related approaches to tackling bullying, discrimination and exclusion, through a range of options offered by the Methodist strategy for Justice, Dignity and Solidarity.

The recordings for all the webinars in the series are now on the Bullying Webinars (methodist.org.uk) webpage.

As ever, if you have any questions or concerns please give me a call on 07483 362 735 or email me at safeguarding@sheffieldmethodist.org
Many thanks
Alison Hill
District Safeguarding Officer.
