It’s an exciting time to be part of M.C.F. as we see our loving God at work among us! He’s touching many of our lives in powerful ways and we can barely wait to see what He’s got for us in 2013! He’s giving us a hunger for revival and a heart for those who have yet to meet Him! He’s bringing new people to us ~ people of all ages and backgrounds. So why not come and see what God is doing? Join us for one of our Sunday services ~ you can be sure of the warmest of welcomes!

Well, what a ‘summer’ we’ve had so far! Record amounts of rain; the resulting floods in so many places; high winds; and a definite lack of blue skies and sunshine! It’s enough to make the most cheerful of people feel a little bit ‘down in the dumps’! Indeed, even God’s people are not immune from sudden attacks of ‘S.A.D.’. (Let’s be honest, very few of us enjoy walking around in clothes that could do with wringing out before we put them in the dryer!)
But here at M.C.F., (despite the dreary weather forecast for the rest of July and August), we do have things to smile about for God is noticeably at work amongst us! Sunday by Sunday, as we meet together, there’s that wonderful sense that God is with us, blessing us with His presence and touching our lives with His love and His word.
So if you’re looking for friendship, looking for hope, looking for God, why not join us for our Sunday morning service? We’d love to see you, love to meet you, love to get to know you!

This coming Saturday and Sunday, (28-29 April), we shall be enjoying our ‘Home Weekend’ ~ two days of togetherness and teaching based at our own church building.
Having led churches in suburban, city-centre and international contexts Ian and his wife, Ruth, are now involved in training a new generation for servant leadership. They have a passion to teach the Bible in language people can understand and do so at conferences across the world.
Ian’s subject for this weekend will be ‘Insight’ and is based on 1 Chronicles 12:32. His four talks all spring from passages in the Book of Acts and will explore what it means to be ‘missional church’ as opposed to ‘maintenance church’.
Ian writes: “It’s not hard to come up with good ideas about church. But what we need are ‘God-ideas’. The men of Issachar are praised in Scripture because they understood the times and could see what action was needed. Looking at some key passages in the book of Acts, we shall be thinking about what it takes to be Church engaged in God’s Mission.”
The programme for the weekend will be as follows…
Saturday 28th April
10.00 Session 1: ‘Missional Impetus’
11.30 Session 2: ‘Missional Ministry’
18.00 ‘M.C.F.’s got Talent!’
Sunday 29th April
10.30 Morning Service (inc. Session 3: ‘Missional Vision’)
12.45 Bring & Share lunch
14.00 Session 4: ‘Missional People’ (inc. communion)
If you live in or around Martock, please come and join us for what promises to be an excellent weekend!
