Youth Presidency Vacancy
Applications are open for the role of Youth President 2023/2024.
Do you know a young person aged 17-22 who could be our next Youth President? This is a fantastic opportunity to spend a year representing children and young people. The role involves travel in the UK and overseas and advocating and decision-making and the most senior levels of the Methodist Church. The salary is generous, and support with accommodation is offered for those who live outside London.
The majority of past Youth Presidents were encouraged to apply by a minister, chaplain or youth leader, so you have an important role to play in raising up our next generation of leaders – please show the advert to young people in your community today.
A New Pillar at the MK Rose – unveiled by Revd Edson Dube
On Wednesday 25th May 2022 a new pillar was unveiled at the Milton Keynes Rose in Campbell Park. 25 May was the second anniversary of the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, an event which was instrumental in the development and spread of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The wording on the inscription refers to George Floyd’s death and states ‘No person should put their knee, chain or noose on another’s neck because of their colour’.
Superintendent Minister, Revd Edson Dube, led the campaign to have the inscription on behalf of the MK Council of Faiths.

God of all grace, you do not need us to agree with one another,
but you do call us to love one another just as you love us.
We know your love to be generous and gracious. May we share graciously and generously.
You created us to be a part of your diverse creation,
richer for being a gift and not a threat to one another.
So give us courage every day, not just to worship you but to follow where your love leads. Amen.
