Welcome to MBC

Good morning and a very warm welcome to Moortown Baptist Church. During the Covid-19 crisis, like all churches Moortown Baptist Church has been forced to make a number of changes. However, please don’t get the impression that just because our building is closed so too is MBC. On the contrary our ministry continues as each Sunday instead of "coming to church" we now meet online at 10.45am via Facebook and YouTube. Our Seniors' work also continues although in a very different way to how it used to, as does our Children and Families programme with both Oasis and Moortots also going online. If you haven’t already done so may we suggest that the best way to keep in touch with everything that's happening is to sign up to our weekly e-newsletter in the box you see below, right.
