The EASTER OFFERING 2018 dedication service, Seek Peace and Pursue It (Psalm 34:14) features stories from Mission Partners in Sri Lanka, Japan and Israel/Palestine supported by the World Mission Fund. Each one is working towards peace and reconciliation in their own situations. The worship will encourage us to consider how we might learn from these situations and find ways to 'seek peace and pursue it', in our individual lives, churches and communities.
This service provides an opportunity for churches and circuits 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 and Ireland, supporting 65 Partner Churches overseas. 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.
