All we Can

'Every person's potential fulfilled'

All We Can, formally known as the Methodist Relief and Development Fund, is an international relief and development agency rooted in the Methodist Church which works to support people in marginal communities throughout the world, to enable flourishing and resilient communities. It reflects John Wesley's call to 'Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.'

More details about the work of All We Can are available at About us – All We Can.

The Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT) is a partnership between the Methodist Church, Baptist Union, United Reformed Church and the Church of Scotland which works together with the partner churches for peace and justice.

The work of JPIT is focused on six hopes:

  • A just economy that enables the flourishing of all life
  • A world that actively works for peace
  • A society that welcomes the stranger
  • A society where the poorest and most marginalised are at the centre
  • A planet where our environment is renewed
  • A politics characterised by listening, kindness and truthfulness

Methodist Women in Britain

For women, for justice, for Christ

Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) is a volunteer-run charity within the Methodist Church in Britain.

Our aims are three-fold:

  • to bring women together, encouraging one another to know Christ and to make him known, as Methodist women and as part of the wider Church in the world;
  • to encourage, resource and train women members of the Methodist Church, equipping them to participate more fully in the wider church and in society;
  • to connect women in Britain with women overseas, working in partnership with others to raise awareness of and act upon issues of social justice around the world.

We do this by:

  • providing fellowship and training events, including the annual residential conference, pilgrimage opportunities, and one-day events;
  • producing print and online resources and publications, for worship and spiritual growth, and for advocating and providing information on issues of social concern;
  • highlighting areas of need and raising funds or providing other goods or services to support partners and agencies working to alleviate poverty and injustice.

MWiB works closely with the wider Methodist Church, particularly the Global Relationships Team, and is a full member of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals form the basis of our work, activities, events and projects, and everything we do is encompassed within four areas:

  • Creative Spirituality
  • World Church Focus
  • Global Social Justice
  • Resourcing and Enabling
