Lunch Club – on safari!

Sam’s Safaris visited Lunch Club this week to provide an interactive handling session. Sam’s Safaris is an animal education company providing  amazing animal encounters with exotic and rare animals from all over the world.

Our Lunch Club regulars enjoyed meeting a selection of creatures including Milly the millipede, Jaffa the tortoise and Tony the tiger salamander amongst others.

Here are a selection of photographs from the session.

Exciting day at MBC with a baptism and seven people being welcomed into membership

What and exciting morning we had today (Sunday September 15th) as a packed church celebrated a baptism and seven people being welcomed into membership.

The baptism was that of Rochelle Peter, a lovely young woman who is currently studying dentistry abroad but who’s family are long standing MBC regulars.  The picture above shows Rochelle with friend and supporter Kathryn Thompson and Co-Minister Rev Graham Brownlee.

The picture below, meanwhile, was taken at the start of our monthly Communion Service when Graham, fellow Co-Minister Shona Shaw and the whole congregation warmly welcomed seven new members.

A warm welcome for our new Pioneer Youth Lead

There was a warm, and somewhat energetic welcome today (Sunday 1 Sept) for James Wilde as he officially took up his new position as MBC’s Pioneer Youth Lead.

James joins us with all sorts of imaginative plans in mind as besides his work with our young people he seeks to take his ministry into some of our local High Schools.

Moving from his home in the North East and into a flat at the end of the week this is an exciting time for both him and for the church.

God bless you James, may your move to Leeds go smoothly and we pray that your work here be both rewarding and fruitful.
