The EASTER OFFERING 2019 dedication service Longer tables, lower fences, features stories of shared hospitality across the world. The worship encourages us to consider how we might build longer tables, rather than higher fences, as we share whatever we have and connect with our neighbours.
This service provides an opportunity for churches, circuits and districts to gather and celebrate God's mission activity in the wider world. It includes the dedication of the Easter Offering, all of which goes to the World Mission Fund of the Methodist Church in Britain. Leader's notes give valuable guidance to assist local organisers in the preparation of the service.

Methodist Women in Britain is a movement within the Methodist Church, led by a group of volunteers and funded by donations, which aims to connect women with an interest in creative spirituality and a passion for global social justice. We hold day conferences and residential events, produce printed and online resources and engage in social justice campaigns. MWiB is about more than Methodism, more than women and more than Britain — we have strong links with the World Church, and are part of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women.
