Global Covid Relationships

Home » News » Global Covid Relationships

The Global Relationships team is working during this time to keep the Methodist Church in Britain closely connected with our mission partners, Partner Churches and organisations around the world. The aim is to keep us updated with the global picture of coronavirus and messages of support, prayer and reflection from around the world.

All We Can and the Methodist Church in Britain have launched an Emergency Coronavirus Appeal to help vulnerable communities around the world. This appeal is being used in conjunction with Methodist Church grants to support communities and partner organisations in their work. Since the global lockdown over £425,000 has been used from the World Mission Fund to support the work of our partners. Their work has focussed on PPE support for health centres and staff, hygiene goods, support for staff and some costs to support organisations, but the majority have been for organisations to support congregations and communities that have no income. This is primarily in food support distribution that the partners organise or are part of in their location. For information on some of the grants given in recent weeks, and more information, click here.
