The Methodist Academies and Schools Trust was created to enable the Methodist Church to discharge its duty as a provider of education.
'Go not where you are needed, but where you are needed most'.
'Do all the good that you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, at all the times you can, as long as ever you can, to all the people you can.'
