Services

Sunday mornings

At 10.30am we come together for worship, teaching and fellowship.  The service usually concludes around 12.00.

Our musical style is lively and contemporary and varies from week to week as different people lead worship. Preaching is biblical and aims to be relevant to everyday life. Generally, sermon series run termly – either working through a biblical book or taking a topic. Communion is celebrated on the second Sunday of each month.

The first Sunday of the month is an All Age Worship service where the whole church community stays together for worship, fellowship and teaching.  For the remaining Sundays, the children and young people have their own activities which run for part, or all, of the time the service is happening.

After the service, refreshments are served in the foyer and this is a good chance to mingle and meet with other people. There is also an opportunity to receive prayer ministry and trained people are available to meet with you.

If you are new to the church, please make yourself known to one of the stewards, or pick up one of our Welcome Packs and return the Response Card with your details on, to one of the stewards – we’d love to get to know you.

For further information, please contact the church office.

First Sunday

First Sunday is the evening service for MLBC and our partner churches, St. James, St. Albans and St Paul’s. As the name suggests, it is held on the first Sunday of every month at St. Alban’s Church (Pretoria Road) from 6.30pm.

An informal café style service with worship, discussion, teaching and prayer, it is led by leaders from the four churches and represents a focus for the increasing co-operation and unity between us. We often have guest speakers who share on topics that are relevant to us locally and globally.

We particularly aim to support those serving on Sunday mornings.

Hungry

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” (Matthew 5:6)

Hungry takes place at 6.30pm on the second Sunday of most months in the lounge at MLBC. This session is particularly aimed at mature Christian believers who are hungering and thirsting to know and experience more of God. Each session has time for worship, waiting on the Lord, teaching from and meditating upon the Bible, and ministering to one another in the Holy Spirit. It also provides a safe and loving environment to develop our spiritual gifting.
