Walsall Methodist Circuit MWiB
Mrs Pauline Beattie (Walsall Circuit MWiB Secretary)
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.
