We have a proud heritage stemming from the twin roots of Women’s Work, founded in 1858 to support training and care for women missionaries, and Women’s Fellowship started in 1945 out of a concern to address social problems resulting from the war.

These two movements merged in 1987 to form the Women’s Network of the Methodist Church, with a clear place in the Methodist Connexional Team. A change came in 2008 resulting in the launch in 2011 of Methodist Women in Britain as an independent, self-financing organisation.


West Northumberland Foodbank is a charity based in Hexham, providing a safety net for people in hardship throughout the area. Through the collection and distribution of food donations and other household essentials alongside support with benefits and debt problems, our aim is to help people get back on their feet.
In our last full year, we helped nearly 400 households in Hexham, Haltwhistle, Prudhoe and their surrounding areas.

Quite simply, ECG is about bringing our community together. Each year we ask people of all ages to join us as we share in a five-day celebration of fellowship, worship and teaching.

Although many of our speakers and delegates are from a Methodist background, we do not choose guests on the basis of their denomination. Instead, we invite those who we feel offer real insights into Christian teaching and who can help us to deliver what always proves to be an interesting, varied and family-friendly programme.

Each day, visitors to ECG can take part in morning Bible study, choose from different seminar streams and participate in lively discussions. Our ever-popular fringe day and evening programme includes drama, music, comedy and film.

A range of specially designed activities ensures that our younger visitors don’t miss out either. Creche facilities are available for babies, while age-specific groups run by our highly-skilled youth workers make this an event for everyone.


Every summer the town of Keswick hosts a three-week Convention, which attracts some 15,000 Christians from the UK and around the world. The event provides Bible teaching for all ages, vibrant worship, a sense of unity across generations and denominations, and an inspirational call to serve Christ in the world. It caters for children of all ages and has a strong youth and young adult programme. And it all takes place in the beautiful Lake District - a perfect setting for rest, recreation and refreshment.
