Important News!

 

Reopening of the Church continues this Sunday 22nd November at 11am, with the live celebration running simultaneously with the Zoom celebration.
Due to the ‘social distance’ restrictions, strict control over numbers of people invited and allowed access is essential.
Therefore, we have apportioned the members and regular attendees into three groups.         
Please note the following –

22 November – People with surnames beginning A – F are invited to come to the church.
29 November -  People with surnames beginning G – M are invited.
6 December – People with surnames beginning N – Z are invited.

Please help to keep us safe by following the instructions given by the leaders and complying with the guidance given on the posters in the Church.
The Zoom celebrations will continue throughout.

Christmas Newsletter          

 

We have continued to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic very carefully and have gradually been able to open more activities after the two-week firebreak. A Church meeting was held on 16th November and we were able to update the Church on the current status of Church activities.  Having trialled a Zoom connection from the sound desk we are now able to hold a Sunday service in the Chapel and to broadcast it on Zoom to the groups not able to attend and our friends who have joined us from a distance.  Details of the arrangements for attending are on the Home page.  These will be reviewed at the end of the year when we may be able to change to alternate weeks depending on numbers attending.
As we now have capacity within the Chapel all members are now welcome to attend the Tuesday service that we are continuing to run currently up until 22nd December.
At present we are unable to include members who would like to attend Church meetings through a Zoom connection.  In January, though, we hope to propose a change to the Constitution, by a special resolution, that will enable members to join by Zoom in time for the AGM.
Thomasina started on 1st November in her role of Church/Community Officer and Thomasina and her husband, Simon, were admitted to membership at the Church meeting. She is already getting to know people and has been able to help Harry with the preparation of service and community activities.
Regrettably, because of the Covid restrictions we will be unable to have the Post box in the Chapel this year.  There will be a Christmas edition of the magazine and John will include a Christmas greetings page – for a donation to BMS – of course

Picture1 Who cares

  

"Who Cares?” is a charity.  South Wales Baptist Association is partnering with Who Cares?  to invite churches to work together in asking people in their communities one big question "What Hurts The Most?"   Check it out on;   https://www.southwalesba.org.uk

Many people feel like no one truly cares about their deepest pain - this is an opportunity to show this community that someone does.  You may be asking yourself right now, "Who Cares?" Well Magor Baptist Church does, we care! 
 
It is a simple process and one which everyone can participate.  One of the ways to take part is online, simply follow this link;

https://www.who-cares.org.uk/church-questionnaire?ref=SWMB010

  
This will take you to the Magor Baptist Church Questionnaire, it is very simple to complete.  The answers you provide are absolutely anonymous.  The information supplied, once processed, acts like a “community thermometer.”  The unique church code is already shown on the questionnaire.  If you take part, one request, in the “Context” box can you please enter “MBC3.”  
 
An important thing to remember is that if you want to speak to someone in Magor Baptist Church then use any of these forms of contact;
