Transforming the world from the kitchen?

The Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) Heritage and Archives Task Group need your help to tell the story of women working together in British Methodism from Susanna Wesley to the present day. Women have always taken the lead in the Methodist story rather than waiting for things to happen and in living memory we have seen a number of significant women's movements within Methodism such as:

Women's Work
Women's Fellowship
The British Unit of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women
Girls' League
Young Wives
Women's Network
Methodist Women in Britain

Can you help?
The Task Group need your memories!
They have suggested three questions which may help you to begin but you can ignore this if your memories don't fit exactly. It is all part of the story.

The questions to get you started are:
1. What is your first memory of encountering any women's movement* in Methodism?
2. What has been your most significant engagement with any women's movement in Methodism?
3. Where have you seen women changed, or the world changed, by these movements?

You can write your memories on paper and send them by post or you can write them electronically and email them. (See below)

In either case, could you be kind enough to complete and return the 'Story Collection Agreement Form' to acknowledge your consent for your story to be used as part of the project. You can download this from the Publications part of our website.

Your stories and agreement form can be posted or emailed to Sarah Braisdell at Epworth Old Rectory, 1 Rectory Street, Epworth, North Lincolnshire, DN9 1HX or sgbraisdell1@gmail.com

If you have any artifacts you would like to offer to be added to the collection then please also complete the 'Object History Form' and send this, along with your items, to Sarah Braisdell at Epworth Old Rectory, 1 Rectory Street, Epworth, North Lincolnshire, DN9 1HX. They will acknowledge receipt of your artefacts and inform you in due course whether they are to be accepted into the collection.
If you would like to invite Sarah to a meeting please contact her.
