Racism, Sewell and the Christian Response

Last month’s Government Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities (Sewell) Report has generated a great deal of debate within society and church.

A webinar on the 14 April offers an opportunity to hear from some of the keenest minds in church and society on the report, and for you to share your opinions on the issues. The event is hosted in partnership with the Racial Justice Advocacy Forum, the Baptist Union of Great Britain and CTBI.

MWiB Easter Offering 2021 – recorded service and how to give

We are delighted to announce the completion of the promised
video-recording of this year’s Easter Offering Service, ‘Into all the
world’, which is now available for you to watch on our brand new MWiB
YouTube channel. The video has been produced by the MWiB Executive, and
lasts around 45 minutes. With the text of the service on screen, and
recordings of hymns and songs to join in with, the video is ideal
particularly for smaller groups (if able to meet) and for individuals to
watch at home.

The link to the YouTube video is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg9uuQq_6qM&t=2s

If you’re unable to meet, why not arrange a time for your group to watch
it at home ‘together-apart’, and perhaps arrange an online/Zoom chat
over coffee afterwards?

If you would like to donate directly, via the Just Giving page, please
visit www.justgiving.com/mcfworldmission/donate and reference your
donation with EO Service 2021. You can also access this page via the
Methodist Church website (www.methodist.org.uk) when you search for

Supporting survivors of abuse

Supporting Survivors of Abuse
The Methodist Church has produced a leaflet on how we can support survivors of abuse within the Methodist community.

It explains how to seek care and support when making a disclosure, and describes what is likely to happen next and the standards we expect to achieve.
