    World Church Focus

    WORLD CHURCH FOCUS

    The principal aim of the women’s movement in the Methodist Church, established in the 1850s, was to train, equip, and finance the sending of women missionaries overseas, and this remains one of the principle aims of Methodist Women in Britain.  MWiB continues to support today’s Mission Partners with pastoral, practical and prayer support.

    Working closely with the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women, the British Methodist Church’s Global Relationships team, and other partner organisations, MWiB maintains links with women in our 65 Partner Churches around the world, joining with them in prayer and worship in shared events and resources, meeting with them for fellowship and encounter in overseas and exchange visits, and working with them to raise awareness and campaign on a variety of social justice issues.

    As part of the World Federation’s Europe: Britain and Ireland Area, we relate particularly closely with Methodist Women in Ireland, and with the Europe: Continental Area, jointly organising Area events and enjoying exchange visits between our annual residential conferences.

    WORLD FEDERATION OF METHODIST AND UNITING CHURCH WOMEN

    The World Federation is a global fellowship of Christian women from the Methodist, United, and Uniting churches. Each belongs to their own national Unit, and these Units are grouped into nine geographical Areas. MWiB is the British Unit of the World Federation, and joins with the Ireland Unit to form the Europe–Britain and Ireland Area.

    The purpose of the World Federation is:
    ~ to be a support group for women acting as a catalyst in their faith and actions;
    ~ to promote the interests of women in all areas of life, in spiritual growth, equality, development and peace;
    ~ to work towards the recognition of the equal status of women;
    ~ to facilitate, encourage and actively promote leadership training for women;
    ~ to be a voice for Methodist, United and Uniting Church women.

    These aims are illustrated in the World Federation logo, the Tree of Life (the name also given to its quarterly magazine), and are summed up in its motto: To Know Christ and To Make Him Known.

    Methodist Women are encouraged to use the World Federation Prayer on the 26th day of each month, to remember and renew our commitment to God, to the world, and to our World Federation sisters.

    WORLD FEDERATION PRAYER

    A prayer to use especially on the 26th day of each month, to remember and renew our commitment to God, to the world, and to our World Federation sisters:

    Creator God,
    Rooted in your loving care,
    Nurtured through your son Jesus,
    Challenged by your Holy Spirit,
    We are in the World
    To bring peace with justice,
    Reconciliation in love,
    And hope for all people.
    May our lives extend as the branches of our Tree of Life,
    Bearing fruits of Unity and Love.
    We offer praise and thanksgiving
    Through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
    Amen
