News of the Church Family, for our intercessions:

Our prayers will be for God’s rich blessings on all named and unnamed; in physical, mental, emotional or spiritual needs.


Our prayers of thanksgiving:

“Be still, and know that I am God;

  I will be exalted among the nations,

  I will be exalted in the earth.”

 The Lord Almighty is with us;

   the God of Jacob is our fortress.      (Ps 46: 10, 11 NIV)

Brigade Week - Thanks to all those who donated to Brigade week. With other funding, including bag packing efforts, and Gift Aid to come the Brigades have raised £2037.


Car Boot Sale

We will be attending another car boot sale sometime in April to raise money for Send a Cow.  Please look out reasonable quality goods for sale and we will arrange to collect them nearer the time.  Many thanks, Jean


Art Classes – back by popular demand

Because the previous Art Classes were so popular, Chris Brown has agreed to lead another series, this time using Oil Pastels.  The first taster session will take place on Monday 11th March from 2pm until 4pm. All materials will be provided for this session.


Malvern Food Bank. A list of currently needed items is on the notice board in the lobby. I also have an interesting newsletter from the food bank. If anyone is interested in reading it please see David Snell or email d.snell@djssoft.co.uk with MFB news letter as the subject


Malvern Mystery Play

There is to be a Malvern Mystery Play in a few months which is being directed by Rob Swinton (of Great Malvern Priory). Rob is keen that as many people as possible from across the Malvern church community are involved in this production and therefore would be very grateful if this could be brought to the attention of your church members, if it hasn't been so already. 'Ambassadors' are available to speak to your church giving more details if required. However, as time is of the essence, if anyone is interested in becoming involved they should be urged to contact either Rob, phone 01684 564928, or Rev Colin Beavers on 01684 897715 (email colinandann.beevers@btinternet.com).


Volunteers needed!

There are a small amount of tasks to do around the church for anybody who is handy at DIY and also Joanna would like some additional help in the garden.

If you feel you can help contact Steve Dowling or Joanna Crewe.

Malvern Baptist’s Prayer Chain

Malvern Baptist’s Prayer Chain is now up and running!

The prayer chain aims to serve this church by giving immediate, confidential, prayer support as and when there is a need. Nothing is ever too big or too small to bring before our God. Neither can too much prayer support ever be given.

If you have a prayer request or want to know more about our prayer chain please contact: Janet Raggett 07962 130256


Volunteer Lifts

If any of the congregation are available at any time to offer lifts to other members who are not physically able to come to services, can they please contact a member of The Care team to let them know.


At Malvern Baptist Church we take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously.  If you have any concerns over the safety of any young person or adult please report, in confidence, to either Gerry or Lindsey Davies, MBC Safeguarding Team.
