Let Justice Roll

 "But let justice roll on like a river,
righteousness like a never-failing stream!"
(Amos 5:24, NIV)

Methodist Women in Britain, as a justice-seeking charity, has chosen the theme 'Let Justice Roll' for this year's Easter Offering Service.

This Easter Offering 2024 service tells stories of people standing for justice, persisting in the face of setbacks and taking up the challenge anew as circumstances change. Some stories show how people now have hope because justice has 'rolled' into their lives.

Let Justice Roll offers us a celebration of God's just purposes across 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, supporting and working with over 100 Partner Churches and organisations around the world.

Our Circuit Service takes place atKelsall Methodist Church on Sunday 28th April at 6pm. All are welcome.

About Easter Offering
Each year, the Methodist Church holds an Easter Offering dedication service. This tradition dates back to 1883, when women in Manchester collected £32 for missionary work overseas from 'Christmas pennies' at family gatherings on Christmas Day. In March 1884, the London Districts distributed Easter envelopes and collecting bags asking for a penny a head, and collected around £100. In 1900, Women's Work raised £1,655 for the work of overseas missions.

Since then, each successive Methodist women's movement has encouraged donations in support of God's mission. Recently, Methodist Women in Britain (supported by the Global Relationships team) have produced an annual service of dedication, often used widely around the Connexion as a circuit service.
