Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB)

SOUTHLANDS women are actively involved in the life and activities of Methodist Women in Britain, particularly in the York Circuit and the Yorkshire North and East District.

Some of our women were able to attend a district MWiB summer event at Filey Methodist Church on Friday, 16th June, 2017.

The theme for District MWiB events and activities in 2017/18 is "Called to Proclaim - Dare to Speak Out".

So some of our women were at Norton Trinity Methodist Church (YO17 7HY) on Thursday, 21st September, for the induction service at which Mrs Janice Clark was made Yorkshire North and East District MWiB President. The afternoon session focussed on Godly Play. 

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017: Partnership Day – “Called to Proclaim – What?” was the theme of the Partnership Day at Sowerby Methodist Church, near Thirsk, on 24th October, and “Called to Proclaim – Where Now?” was the theme of a District Meeting at Lidgett Grove Methodist Church, York, on 10th November.
