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.
Methodist Women in Britain District MWiB Day
The next District meeting is on Tuesday 20th November when the speaker will be from the Society of Parents of Children with Cancer (SPOCC) which is the new President’s chosen charity.
The minibus will leave Central Hall at 9.10am as the day now starts at 10.15 and finishes at 3.00 to allow an easier journey back home. Please bring a packed lunch and a £1 lucky dip wrapped parcels. Please let either Margo Taylor or Andrew Beattie know if you will be travelling on the minibus.
With many thanks
