The CAP Money Course is a revolutionary money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that really works. This course, devised by the award-winning debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty, will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt.
Our very own fully-trained team will be running a 3-week CAP Money Course here at MBC starting on Wednesday 13 November, 7.30pm. This course can truly be life-transforming so be sure to publicise these dates to any friends/family/neighbours etc. that would find this support helpful.

The Playgroup Leaders will be responsible for the running of our weekly playgroup sessions, ensuring safe, stimulating play and responding to the needs of the children and parents/carers attending. This will involve planning, preparing and delivering play-based activities appropriate for children aged 1-4 years. This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving team attended by over 100 pre-school children each week!
Closing date for applications is Friday 6th September.
Following the service on Sunday 12 May, there will be a short family meeting to hear a proposal for the purchase of the second manse. All are encouraged to attend, pray for God’s guidance and contribute to the discussion. There will be a vote on the proposed funding which will be open to church partners only.
Easter is a significant time of the year as we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus. The plan for the Easter weekend is:
Following the success and significance of last years service, when around 40 people gathered in the evening to worship, reflect and enjoy food together, we are repeating the format again this year. Our Maundy Thursday Service will start at 7.30pm and depending upon numbers will take place in the Concourse or the Meeting Place.
If you are planning to attend the service we are asking people to sign-up by Sunday 14 April so we have an idea of numbers and any dietary requirements.
You can indicate your attendance using the sign-up sheet in the foyer or email the office and we’ll add you to the list.
On Good Friday we will gather at MBC at 10am where we will spend time in worship before distributing hot cross buns to the shops and people on the high street. Then at about 11.30am it’s over to Morden Hall Park (grass area opposite the white iron bridge) for fun and food (bring a picnic).
Our Easter weekend concludes as we join together on Easter Sunday at 10.30am to celebrate the Resurrection and, appropriately, baptisms.
This year our Easter Offering will be going to Wycliffe Bible Translators. 1.5 billion people in the world can’t access the Bible in their language, because it hasn’t been translated yet. To them, it’s like God doesn’t speak their language. We want to help change that by supporting Bible translation for a specific people group. We have chosen their Ghana project because Ghana is represented in our congregation.
On Sunday 17 March following the 10.30 Gathering we’ll be holding our first Church Family Meeting of 2019.
As usual we would encourage all of you to attend to be able to pray for the church and contribute to the discussion about what is happening in the life of MBC. There are usually a number of items for discussion, but in order that everyone is able to ask any questions that they would like to, we invite you to submit your questions – using the form below – to the board in advance of the meeting so that these may be addressed and information shared.
