Surviving by Hope was the theme of the Methodist Women in Britain Conference that took place in Swanwick in April.
The keynote speaker and leader for the weekend was Jill Baker, former President of Methodist Women in Britain and a past Vice President of the Methodist Conference.
Based in Glasgow, Jill is a former Mission Partner (with her husband Andrew), and she continues to serve the Methodist Church in various roles both locally adn Connexionally.
Jill focussed on the energising and sustaining practices of pilgrimage and poetry. Many of the conference sessions can be viewed for free on YouTube here
