“Methodist Women in Britain is pleased to announce a ‘2020 Emergency Discretionary Support Fund’ set up to help churches that have incurred unexpected expenses over the past few months. Single discretionary grants of up to £200 may be awarded to those churches facing additional unforeseen costs to assist their work and witness during lockdown and going forward. If you would like to apply, please write to MWiB giving full details of how this grant would be used and whether you have already raised your own funds towards it.

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 www.mwib.org.uk 

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.

Our District MWiB meet four times a year, January and June are our Business meetings and all are welcome, the District days are twice a year in March and October. These take place at various churches around the district, and focus on many subjects. At the October meeting we shall be “Welcoming our new president”

Also meeting a former Vice president of the Methodist church.
