It is with sadness that I have to inform you that Lorna Booth died on Tuesday night after a short illness.  I visited her a few hours before her death and her family were with her. Please pray for them.


Sheila Griffiths

I have to report with great sadness that David Griffiths rang me this morning to say that his wife Sheila died last night of a brain haemorrhage.  Please uphold  David and the family at this difficult time.

Mary Sim

Mary Sim, the wife of Ian Sim, our moderator during the pastoral vacancy, is recovering from a stroke.  Ian has been in touch: “ Mary has made a very good recovery from the stroke that happened on 2nd February. I brought her home yesterday (12th). She has exercises to do and continues to progress. We are grateful to the paramedics here and the staff at Hereford and Brecon hospitals. Thanks too for all the messages, cards, support and offers of help. Praise God!”.


Maintenance Volunteers needed

At the recent church meeting it was requested that the Baptistry cover be made more fitting for the front of the church. If there is anybody that has the time and skills to rebuild this cover and is willing to do so can they see Steve Dowling and discuss the work involved.


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 Dave Clarke 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
