Summer 2018 at MBC
Sunday mornings at MBC
Services on Sunday 29th July to Sunday 26th August inclusive will take place in Tetbury Street from 10.30am until 11.30am with no refreshments before or after the service.
- After a short time of all-age worship, primary-aged children (current school years reception to year 6) will be taken to The Hub for the children’s programme. Children should be collected at 11.30am.
- Pre-school children (and children due to start school in September) may be taken upstairs to the lounge – toys and a craft will be set up but parents must remain with their children. The service will be relayed to the large screen so that parents can see and hear the service.
- There will be no youth group, so the youth may either stay in the service or may get involved with the primary children at The Hub.
Sunday worship at MBC is a time to enjoy God's presence and learn from him.
We normally meet at Tetbury Street and begin with coffee at 10.00 am. Then, at about 10.30 am there is a short time of all-age worship before our children and young people
leave for their own age-appropriate activities at Tetbury Street and in The Hub. Adults stay in the service for more worship and Bible teaching. The morning ends at 12 noon. At certain times of the year (Christmas, Easter Sunday, Remembrance Sunday and during the school summer holidays) we may do things differently. Please check the website calendar for details.
The Bible says, “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” We aim to do that every Sunday morning. Sometimes in the words of the great old hymns of the Christian faith, sometimes with contemporary new songs. Sometimes with up-beat celebratory worship and sometimes in quiet reflection and thankfulness for God’s continuing involvement in our lives.
Preaching at MBC is always Biblical, thought-provoking, memorable and life-related. We believe that the Bible is God’s (relevant) Word to us today. So what we teach and how we aim to live centres around that. We are continually discovering that new friends to our church are amazed at how relevant the Bible is to modern-day living. We try to hold the Bible in one hand and today's newspaper in the other, and to make the link between God's truth, which doesn't change, and our constantly-changing world with all its dilemmas.
A lot of different people work behind the scenes to make this happen. Worship leaders and preachers, singers and musicians, our prayer ministry team, our technicians, welcome team and caterers.
