Ahead of a packed Communion Service our first Third Sunday Breakfast proves a big hit

18 March 2019

The first of our Third Sunday Breakfasts proved really popular with more than 40 turning up for the 9.30am start.

It was particularly good to be able to welcome eight visitors from Romania, here in Leeds for 10 days or so and staying with Rod, Karen and Howard. Later, during our 10.45 Service the group presented us with some lovely gifts including a beautiful white cloth which from now on in will take pride of place on our Communion table. 

Graham also took time out to thank and introduce the house group who had planned and prepared breakfast. Described purely for convenience as Phil and Suzanna Laws’ group it was great to see and pray for such a large group of people who quite spontaneously had started to meet together. 

Following Communion the Service closed with John Sherbourne introducing a video about the work of the Leeds and Moortown Furniture Store. The Store started life here at MBC in 1986 and whilst over those three decades much has changed the mission statement drafted all those years ago and the links between it and our church remain the same.

Encouraging listeners to engage with the Store as “critical friends” i.e. people who when help was being sought in a particular area might offer their expertise John emphasised that the story of LMFS is as actually as much a story about people as it is about furniture. 

If you weren’t with us on Sunday, or if you were and you would like to see it again there’s a link to John’s video here –
