The story of women working together in British Methodism, our ‘heritage timeline’, and the MWiB Heritage and Archives Resource Pack.

The ‘heritage timeline’ leaflet, ‘Transforming the World from the Kitchen?’ tells the story of the various women’s movements in the British Methodist Church from the earliest beginnings in 1858, through Women’s Work, Women’s Fellowship, Women’s Network, to the present day Methodist Women in Britain.

You can download the leaflet here , or you can order free printed copies from the MWiB Resources Officer either

or by post: MWiB Resources, c/o Touchstone, 4 Easby Road, Bradford BD7 1QX

The timeline forms part of the MWiB Heritage and Archives Resource Pack, compiled by Sarah Braisdell, who writes:

‘Transforming the World from the Kitchen?
The Story of women working together in British Methodism’

This resource packs aims to help you tell the story of women’s movements in British Methodism from Women’s Work up to the current MWiB movement. Some of the phases of the movement you will know lots about and some you may have only heard the name. Please use this pack to share the story of ordinary women working together in Methodism and allow it to inspire the sharing of stories.

The pack contains:

  • PowerPoint
  • Leaders’ notes for the PowerPoint
  • Questions for Discussion
  • A3 posters
  • Transforming the World from the Kitchen? timeline leaflet
  • Article published in the journal Methodist History

The pack is available to download below for free, or it can be purchased on a memory stick, cost £2.00, from the MWiB Resources Officer (contact details above).

If you have any questions about the contents of the pack or how to use it please contact me by email:

I hope you enjoy using the pack within your churches, MWiB and other fellowship meetings and community to keep the story of Methodist women in past generations alive and hopefully inspire a new generation to carry on the hard but rewarding work of working together to transform the world.
