Walking with Micah
The Walking with Micah project ran until June 2023. For the latest information see A Justice Seeking Church.
What does it mean for the Methodist Church to be a justice-seeking church?
We live at a time of huge change when domestic and global injustices are being revealed and intensified. How can our world be renewed so that all God’s creation, people and planet, can flourish? Watch the video (right) and read on to learn more about the project.
A Justice-Seeking Church: the report of the Walking with Micah project
Background to the project
Our Calling as Methodists means we long for God’s justice in the world. Around the globe and in their own local communities, Methodists are working for justice through responding to needs and campaigning for change.
The prophet Micah reminded people that the worship God wants is for us to act justly, to love as God loves, and to walk humbly with God. Justice-seeking has always been integral to our relationship with God.
The Walking with Micah: Methodist Principles for Social Justice project will help the Methodist Church in Britain to focus on our principles and priorities for justice and through that increase our ability to seek God’s justice, as a Church and in our own Christian lives.
This two-year project involves
- Drawing on our Methodist heritage of challenging injustice and learning from the insights and challenges of others within and beyond the Christian faith.
- Consulting widely within the Methodist Church and listening to what matters to Methodist people at this time.
- Working with others to resource individuals, churches and leaders, to speak and act for justice both individually and in the name of the Methodist Church in Britain.

Between February and June 2022 everyone was invited to take part in a local conversation about justice, and the feedback helped to influence what the Methodist Church will do and say to tackle injustice.
The resources below can still be used locally to facilitate informal conversations around justice.
