All women in sympathy with our aims are welcome at any MWiB event:

  • bringing women together to know Christ and to make him known
  • encouraging, equipping and enabling women to serve God in the church, the community and the world
  • connecting women in Britain with women worldwide

The keynote speaker and leader for the weekend will be

Rosemarie Wenner, Bishop of the German United Methodist Church

Rosemarie has graciously accepted our invitation to be our keynote speaker, just days after she retires from her post as Bishop.  We are grateful for her willingness to come to our weekend.  She will share stories from her experiences, in particular stories of the migrant and refugee situation in Germany and how the churches there have responded to the challenges and been changed as a result.  Rosemarie will also be accompanied by two women from Frauenwerk, the German equivalent of Methodist Women in Britain.

There will also be a variety of workshops; time to make or renew friendships; time to relax together or find quiet space; time to share in conversation and to visit the Market Place.

If you require a crèche or children’s programme, please contact the registrar by 31 January 2017 so that this can be arranged.  Reduced rates are available for children.

There is a variety of single and shared accommodation, all with en-suite facilities.
