CHURCH NEWS

News of the Church Family, for our intercessions:

Appeal for items of encouragement and prayer

In the absence of activities, we are still intending to send out a news sheet. So please send into Peter or myself items of encouragement, answers to prayer or personal testimony for inclusion and we will try to include them.  Similarly if you have particular items for which you would like church prayer.

   Thanks to those who have prepared the intercessions. It would be great if you could record them on your phone as an Mp4 video.  This means that I can include them on the YouTube service.  If you can do this in future weeks this would be great, but don't worry if you can't.   Similarly, if you can make a 2 min max Mp4 video about your life in lockdown (trials, joys, testimonies, wonders!) then send them to me (or send photos ) and I can include them in services.  If you need help in this please ring me

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:

“Breathe on me, breath of God;

so shall I never die,

but live with you the perfect life

of your eternity.”  

(Edwin Hutch 1835-89)

The pastoral team, home group leaders and I will be keeping in touch with you via the telephone, and please let me know if you need help in any way, such as shopping.  Please don't hesitate to ring if you need to talk or you want prayer.   Perhaps you could consider ringing others you know also.

If you can volunteer to be part of a team who can do shopping and food delivery for others please also let me know.  


Yours in Christ

Sue Chappell writes: Thank you so much for all your encouragement and support with my 2.6 challenge. I have now completed all 7 walks from my home to the summit of the Worcestershire Beacon, ascending 2600 meters (and descending another 2600 metres!) and covering over 59kms/37miles.


I am fundraising for Mission Direct, the Christian Charity with whom Jo, Sarah and I volunteered out in Zambia last September. Go to my justgiving page if you would like to support this worthy charity.


Many thanks in anticipation. Blessings, Sue Chappell.


Baptists Together magazine - Summer 2020 edition

Reaching and Raising Young Adults

Baptists Together is an A4 magazine which is sent to church leaders three times a year – in January, April and September.  It seeks to share a range of stories of how our Baptist family is serving God in mission and ministry, as well as giving you information about developments within our Union and challenging you in your own discipleship. Click here for the Summer 2020 edition.


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


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 (safeguarding@malvernbaptistchurch.org.uk).
