Methodist Women in Britain

Methodist Women in BritainWhat is MWiB?

Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) is a new movement within the British Methodist Church which seeks to resource individual women and women’s groups in a variety of ways. MWiB came into being fully at our official launch on 1st July 2011 in Southport.

MWiB was formed largely through the coming together of Women’s Network and the British Unit of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women, but aims to reach out beyond either of these groups. 

MWiB seeks to “offer a broader menu” for women today.  There are lots of opportunities to meet, locally, nationally or internationally, but there are also resources for individuals to use at home, at work or with their families.  The MWiB website is the place to discover these.

MWiB is not independent of the Methodist Church in Britain (MCB) and 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.  We are self-funding and autonomous.
