Research Project - Women's everyday experiences of Methodism 

Message from the researchers:

The project, based at the University of Hull is examining ordinary women's everyday experiences of Methodism in England from 1945. We are looking for Methodist women (of all ages, backgrounds, or roles) to participate in a phone or online interview in which they will discuss their journey as a Methodist, as well as their experience of any artefacts or objects in relation to their Methodist practices. The interview transcript will be used in academic publications, will contribute to an exhibition at Epworth Old Rectory and will be deposited at Epworth Old Rectory Archive. 

If you would consider taking part in an interview, then please contact either Dr Ruth Slatter (the project lead, or Dr Hannah Worthen (the project's Research Assistant, We would also be very grateful even if you can't commit to an interview, if you might be able to forward this information onto other interested parties. And please do get in touch with Ruth or Hannah if you have any questions!

Message from our National Rural Officer regarding the Agriculture Bill - It is crucial that we get an amendment to ensure that imported food must meet the same standards of quality and welfare as that produced by British farmers. Failure to do this could seriously damage UK agriculture. Please sign the petition here:

The Methodist e-Academy would like to recruit students from the UK and Ireland who might be interested in doing the full program or selected modules from it. Further information here
