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.

Alarmingly, my knee is starting to creak more as I run, leaning to one side, in order to be close enough to Daisy to catch her if she is about to fall – but far away enough so that she feels confident and like she is […]

Thumbnail image for Teaching a 3-year-old to ride a bike… and other reflections!  After a week off Nathan returns to share more Daisy driven truths. Today, giving her spinning stabilisers some traction Building a little on from my last blog, this reflection also links into the fact that Daisy has stabilisers on her bike.
