About us

How we work, what we do, our history and heritage…

We have a proud heritage stemming from the twin roots of Women’s Work, founded in the 1858 to support training and care for women missionaries, and Women’s Fellowship, started in 1945 out of a concern to address social problems resulting from the war.

These two movements merged in 1987 to form the Women’s Network of the Methodist Church, with a clear place in the Methodist connexional team. Change came in 2008 resulting in the launch in 2011 of Methodist Women in Britain as an independent, self-financing organisation.

Our aim today is to connect women with an interest in creative spirituality and a passion for global social justice.

Methodist Women in Britain’s main decision-making body is the FORUM, which meets twice each year.  Every district in the British Methodist Church has a representative on the Forum who meet along with the executive members, the Helen Kim Scholar and the Women’s World Day of Prayer Methodist representative.

MWiB 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.
