"...so in Christ we, though many, form one body..."
- Romans 12:5 (NIV)

A BRIEF HISTORY

Malvern Evangelical Church (MEC) was founded in 1969 by a small group of Christians who had begun to meet together in the Co-op Hall in the Barnard’s Green area of Malvern.

The numbers grew and in 1971, the newly constituted MEC took a step forward in faith when a plot of land in Pickersleigh Road was purchased from the then Malvern Urban District Council, with outline approval to build a church. On 31st May 1975, Dr Martin Lloyd-Jones of Westminster Chapel preached at the Dedication Service of the new church.

Over the years, the work of MEC has expanded beyond Sunday worship to embrace a range of activities which cater for all sections of the community, with a particular focus on outreach to children and young people. We also make our building available for neighbourhood groups to use.
 
Our new facilities were completed in early 2016 and offer a range of ministry and group activities to all age ranges. Our vision is to see people empowered through a life-changing relationship with God, encouraged through authentic Christian community and equipped to impact others.

AFFILIATIONS

MEC is affiliated to the Evangelical Alliance. The Evangelical Alliance was founded in 1846 and is the oldest alliance of evangelical Christians in the world.
 
The Evangelical Alliance is the largest body serving evangelical Christians in the UK, and has a membership including denominations, churches, organisations and individuals. In its formative years the Alliance particularly stood for the victims of religious persecution and enabled evangelicals from different denominations to work together.
 
As part of a movement 'uniting to change society' the Alliance promotes unity and truth, acts as an evangelical voice to the state, society and the wider church, and works collaboratively with Alliance members and other evangelicals, to present Christ credibly as good news for spiritual and social transformation.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

         We believe in:
 
  • The unity of the one true and living God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • The Bible as the divinely inspired Word of God.

  • The virgin birth.

  • Salvation by grace through faith since all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.

  • The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ which is the only way by which we can be saved.  

  • The ministry of the Holy Spirit whose ongoing work transforms us, equips us and empowers us for service.

  • The obligation upon each believer to seek to be filled, and be filled continuously, with the Holy Spirit.

  • The baptism of believers which is an outward sign of an inward reality - a public declaration of faith in the saving work of Christ.

  • The observance of the Lord’s supper (communion) in remembrance of His sacrifice for us.

  • The effectiveness of prayer and the need to be in regular fellowship with God.
