Due to the Coronavirus emergency we are unable to meet in groups at the church or in our homes. The priority is to stay safe whilst taking care of our family, friends and neighbours through the challenging weeks of the ‘social distancing’.
You can find us now on FaceBook. We will be posting useful links to the latest practical advice and providing online places where people can continue to relate and support each other.
Sunday morning activities for children
For primary and pre-school children
Children are important members of our church and we want to do as much as possible to encourage and care for them. We aim to teach children the Bible in a fun and relevant way in a safe and supportive environment and to give children freedom to express themselves and to help them to know that God loves them and wants the best for them.
MLBC runs a full programme of activities for children up to the age of 11 on Sunday mornings: Crèche for under 3s, Shooting Stars for 3-7s, and Light House for 7-11s.
On the first Sunday of each month we have an All Age Service – when we all stay together to worship, pray and learn. This service is inclusive of all ages.
On the third Sunday of each month Shooting Stars and Light House groups stay together to have their own ‘Messy Church’ during the whole of the service.
On all the other Sundays the children go to their group activities part way through the main service.
All our groups are overseen by a committed team of trained volunteers – all of whom have been DBS checked and received safeguarding training.
