Guidelines on sexual harassment

Last week the Methodist Church published a set of good practice guidelines for churches to raise awareness of sexual harassment, support victims, and bring about a change in culture to ensure all churches are caring communities, where people safely meet for worship, sharing and learning. The introduction of these new guidelines, along with the guidelines themselves, are available on the Methodist Church website: https://www.methodist.org.uk/about-us/news/latest-news/all-news/methodist-church-publishes-guidelines-on-sexual-harassment/. The restrictions mean the printed versions are taking longer than planned, but they will follow in due course.

The Evangelism and Growth team have attracted some exceptional speakers to the Everyone an Evangelist — Even You Fringe Event on Monday 29 June | 14:00-15:30: Elaine Heath, Krish Kandiah, and Thelma Commey will all be taking part. More information & sign up here
