Action Sunday is an annual event where there is an opportunity to get involved in a different way of being church and to help out with one of a variety of projects in the local community followed by a barbecue afterwards.
Rather than attending the full Sunday morning service, a number of teams or work parties are sent out from MLBC and the other churches in the local area. They go into the community and spend Sunday morning working on projects before returning to church for a shared lunch. Past projects have been very varied and have included clearing gardens, painting a mural at a local primary school and singing at an old peoples home.
Why do we do it?
Through Action Sunday we want to show people in our community the love of God by directly meeting their practical needs.
Action Sundays are open to all and teams are often made up of a mix of people of different ages and church backgrounds.
