Equality Impact Assessment

All Methodists (and Methodist staff) are encouraged to use this Methodist Equality Impact Assessment as one way of asking ourselves relevant questions about how we do things now and how we might do them differently in the future, so that we can help a bigger diversity of people to grow in our discipleship together.

As part of our Christian response to the commandment of Jesus to ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself’ we encourage every Methodist, to get into the habit of thinking who we are leaving out, or ignoring, or hurting, by the way we do things.

You might want to use this Equality Impact Assessment as a formal record of the work that you’ve done and review it to help you see how you are being changed by God.

You may want to use the questions in it for prayer and for individual reflection and learning.

However you use it, we hope that you will talk with one another, and especially with those who do not currently join in fully with what your church is planning and doing together.
