Conference Mission Night 2019

Methodist Conference 2019 was held from 12- 16 June in Cork. Mission Night took place on the Friday evening, organised by the One Mission Group (World Mission Partnership, IMYC, Home Mission, World Development & Relief, MWI & CSR).

Our speakers this year were Rev. Annie Deche, Rev. Andrew Robinson & Rev. Tawanda Sungai- all of whom are currently serving in the Methodist Church in Ireland. Annie is from the Methodist Church in Kenya, Andrew from Methodist Church Southern Africa and Tawanda from Methodist Church in Zimbabwe. They each talked about their learning, so far, from MCI and shared what we can learn from the Methodist Churches which they have come from. 

Thanks to Annie, Andrew & Tawanda, and all others who contributed.

Visit to Zimbabwe, Sept 2018

Tim & Laura (WMP staff) and volunteers Tim & Simon recently visited King George VI School and Centre for disabled children, which will be our project focus

for JMA 2019. 


The team spent time with teachers and pupils learning about the school as well as gathering photos and stories to share in the JMA pack. 

KGVI is a wonderful place of learning, community and personal growth & development. We look forward to sharing more through JMA next year! 

Intercultural Bible Dialogue

Exciting opportunity for Irish Methodists!

Together with Christian Aid Ireland, World Mission Partnership is offering your church/small group a chance to connect with communities virtually across the world to dialogue around the Bible. These intercultural Bible studies seek to enable personal, societal and global transformation. It seeks to strengthen solidarity between communities across the world and to share and deepen faith. And in turn to galvanise and sustain the movement that challenges and changes the systems and structures that perpetuate poverty and inequality across the world.  

This programme has been developed over the last 5 years and at its heart is a desire to see everyone’s voice listened to and valued no matter their status, geography or income.   

Recently groups in Dublin (led by WMP General Secretary Rev. Laurence Graham), Belfast, and La Paz (Bolivia) joined together via. Skype for a Bible dialogue session (pictured). 

You’ll need a good internet connection and a computer, and a few other things we (WMP/CAIreland) may will be able to help with. 

If you would like to know more or are interested in signing up, email Tim
