MWiB’s partnership with Epworth Old Rectory is now well underway. The ‘Transforming the World from the Kitchen’ exhibition will open on March 19th 2016, with an official launch on May 19th 2016 when it will be opened by Dr Jill Barber, Vice President of the Conference. The exhibition will run throughout the 2016 season until October. The exhibition will tell the story of women’s movements in Methodism right from its earliest period and link to the contemporary work of MWiB. The story will spread throughout the Old Rectory highlighting the role of Susanna Wesley as the ‘Mother of Methodism’ and her influence on future generations of Methodist women.
We still need your help…
Whilst the response to the call for artefacts, memories and stories has been great and the new ‘Methodist Women Collection’ is vast and varied the project is still ongoing and the submission of artefacts and stories is still welcomed.
