MWiB update – Swanwick 2021, and volunteering opportunities

Happy new year to you from MWiB.


Following the huge disappointment of having to cancel the weekend at Swanwick in 2020, we have been determined to offer something in 2021, but sadly, we have made the decision not to meet face to face at Swanwick because of the ongoing uncertainties of life with Covid 19, and the need to keep everyone as safe as possible.

However, we are delighted to be able to invite you to ‘Together, with Hope on the Way’, an online conference taking place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th April 2021. It will be different to our previous conferences, but nevertheless is an exciting new venture, which will be accessible to a wider audience.

Our keynote speaker Sister Imelda Poole will be joining us ‘virtually’ from Albania, to talk about her work educating and training young people to help prevent them becoming trafficked. There will also be worship, prayer and Bible study, plus news and information on the work of the World Federation, and a chance for us to celebrate 'together' the tenth anniversary of MWiB.

You can find more information and register your interest now on the MWiB website:

I hope you'll consider joining us - and please pray for the conference as we continue to prepare and as we meet online.


We're currently seeking two volunteers to work with us as we lead this exciting and growing movement into it's second decade: Communications Coordinator, and Website and Social Media Coordinator.

Could this be you? Or someone you know? Perhaps a younger person, or someone not directly connected with MWiB?

You can find an advert for noticeboards, newsletters, websites etc, along with further information and application packs for both roles on our website. Please share and forward this information as widely as possible within your own church, circuit and district:
