“A prison cell, in which one waits, hopes… and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside, is not a bad picture of Advent.”

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal this year. Twenty-two boxes were dropped off ready for collecting and sending abroad. There will be some very happy faces this Christmas. Many thanks. Sue Chappell

PASTORAL CARE TEAM  NEWS  


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 Sue Fairchild or Stephen Ayling, MBC Safeguarding Team.
