Methodist Women in Britain

Methodist Women in Britain

Currently the only circuits of this district that are involved in MWiB are Bolton, Farnworth and Worsley, Bury, Leigh and Hindley, half of the District’s circuits.

 It would be wonderful if the whole District discovered 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.
