As Shelley and James are commissioned MBC recognises and celebrates the importance of its children’s, youth and family ministry

21 October 2019

Sunday’s Commissioning Service for Shelley Dring and James Wilde was far more than a time of welcome and blessing for two new members of staff. As the centrepiece of a service based around the theme of how ancient stones designed for one purpose can come to life and take on a new role the event was actually a recognition and celebration of all the work carried out by MBC’s Children and Youth teams.

In what might perhaps be described as a cross between a high five conga and the age old children’s nursery rhythm Oranges and Lemons the entire congregation were invited to weave their way between two columns of youngsters before those who actually serve on team (upwards of forty people) found themselves standing at the front of church.

I’m sure that for Shelley, our Children and Family Worker and for James, our Pioneer Youth Lead it was a very special day. However, I’m equally certain that for the whole MBC family it was a reminder of just how much emphasise the church continues to put on the nurture, spiritual growing and support of all.

The gallery below shows some more pictures taken on the day. To see a larger copy of any of them simply click on the image.
