Updated 31st January 2022
Not all of the current restrictions have been lifted. We are following the current Government guidelines and those from the Baptist Union.
If you are suffering from ANY COVID symptoms, you should not attend Church.
We encourage everyone, where possible, to complete a lateral flow test before coming to Church.
There is no longer any legal requirement to wear a face covering at MBC and this is now a matter of personal decision. However, what is most important now is how we respect the decisions of each other to wear, or not to wear, a face covering.
If you approach someone who is wearing a face covering please consider wearing one yourself, even if your personal decision is not to do so.
Please Keep Praying
Our Christian identity is reflected in how we do life together and how we serve our communities and your prayers are a vital part.
Let us continue to love one another and treat each other with respect and kindness.
We call the church to pray continually:
We acknowledge the Lord’s sovereignty in and through all things and pray using the words of Paul to the church in Ephesus:
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
With God’s love and blessings to you all.
Paul and the Leadership Team.
