Malvern Baptist Thank Offering

It has been the practice of the church to honour God’s abundant provision to us by holding a thank offering; a freewill offering in addition to our regular tithes and offerings.

This year we are planning to split the money donated equally between 2 causes: a gift to the Baptist Missionary Society (BMS) disaster relief appeals; and half the money to improve the facilities of the church.

If you missed one at church you can find an offering form here.



The flowers this week are kindly donated by Len and Eve Hitchman and arranged by Joan Ainsworth. We thank Len and Eve for this and congratulate them on their .


Operation Christmas Child

Once again we are taking part in Operation Christmas Child. If you would like to support this wonderful project and fill a shoebox for a child this Christmas, then please collect a leaflet with all the details from the back of the Church. I would be very grateful if all the shoeboxes could be brought to Church on (or before) Sunday, November 12th, so that they can be delivered to their collection point. Many thanks. Sue Chappell.


Hall decoration

Ruth Jinks is organising the re-decoration of the lower hall and is looking for additional volunteers to do cleaning and painting. If you can help then please let her know on 01684 439211   mail@theoldcroque.co.uk
