Social Action

At our Joint Synod on 2 September we were involved in workshop presentations on the following issues:

Housing and Homelessness

Councillor Beth Knowles (Greater Manchester Combined Authority)

PDF Housing and Homelessness slides

Hate Crime

Ian Rutherford (Methodist Central Hall, Manchester)

PDF Hate Crime slides

PDF Hate Crime Responses

Living Wage

Lynn Sbaih (GM Living Wage Campaign)

PDF Living Wage slides

Health and Social Care

 Conor McGurran and Rachel Doyle (Unison)

PDF Health and Social Care slides


These four issues were chosen because they are the four social action campaigns which were initiated by Greater Manchester Citizens at the Launch Event and Mayoral Assembly on 1 May 2017 at The Lowry Theatre in Salford.

If you would like to be involved in any of the four campaigns with GM Citizens or would like to know more about how you or your congregation might contribute to help address the matters which were discussed at Synod please contact Rev. Ian Rutherford, the City Centre Minister at Methodist Central Hall, Manchester
