Welcome to MBM
In the four months since lockdown started, we’ve all had to make massive changes in the way we live, work and worship and although restrictions are now easing the repercussions of Covid-19 are still very much affecting our lives. Churches can only meet in a certain restricted way; Christian conference centres are struggling to stay afloat ; public singing is banned.
This means that in MBM our normal way of ministering - travelling the country to lead services, concerts and conferences still cannot happen although we hope it will be restored in time. During lockdown we’ve been gradually taking part in online services and have also begun leading our own online zoom workshops and will be hosting these regularly in the coming weeks. Marilyn is publishing twice weekly podcasts: Hope for the Heart - a reflection with Marilyn singing and speaking and Rest for the Heart - a Scriptural meditation to music. These are being published with links on this website; on our Facebook Page and also on YouTube. Tracy is also posting three weekly encouragement devotionals on the MBM Facebook Page and on here. Do read and listen to these publications and make them known to your contacts as we all need His encouragement, hope and joy at this time.
In Joshua 1 the Israelites faced a momentous change in their circumstances as it came to them moving forward into the fullness of God’s plans after 40 years of wandering in the desert. God’s word to them was: 'Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go', Joshua 1:9. Just as He was with them He is with all of us too. He tells us not to be terrified but to walk forward with courage and strength. We can do this because He is with us and is working to bring amazing things about in our own lives, our families, churches, communities and nation. Know that we are praying for you as you move forward and we thank you for your prayers for us too.
Marilyn, Tracy, Rachel and all at MBM
MBM is a dynamic itinerant ministry of music, teaching and prayer. It began in the early 1980’s with singer/songwriter Marilyn Baker releasing albums which drew people into God’s healing presence.
Churches started inviting her to do evangelistic and encouragement concerts and Marilyn, who has been blind almost from birth, soon realised the tremendous potential to touch people’s lives in a deep way.
At God’s leading she gave up her job as a music teacher and started ministering fulltime. Soon Marilyn was travelling extensively in Britain and many parts of the world. A familiar performer at Spring Harvest, Filey and other conferences, Marilyn quickly became Britain’s top selling female gospel singer.
In 1986 Marilyn was joined by Tracy Williamson, whose gifts in speaking and prophecy enriched the music with a new dimension. Marilyn’s cd’s and Tracy’s books enable them to reach an even wider audience.
The work of MBM has grown. As well as concerts, Marilyn and Tracy undertake church encouragement weekends, workshops and conferences. They minister to large or small groups or in elderly peoples’ homes and prisons. However they do it, the focus of the ministry remains the same, to bring people and churches into the healing and empowering presence of God through music, teaching and prayer.More about MBM Ministries...
Letter From Marilyn
'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.'
Life can be such a rush, and it is so easy to get distracted and involved in things that are not really that important; but if we are going to have fruitful lives and really make a difference in this world we need to live in closeness and intimacy with Jesus Christ.

It’s only as we tune in to what is on his heart that we can really do the things that he has planned. We believe that all lives can be changed and restored as people come into intimacy with Father God, and that is what we want people to do – to hear Him for themselves more and more in their everyday lives and to experience the power of his presence in an ongoing way.
But we don't want to just give people some teaching. We want to help them draw strength from God for themselves in their everyday lives - to teach them how to meditate on God's word. For example, helping them start a prayer journal, to grow into a more intimate relationship with God. This is MBM’s goal – teaching people to ‘fish for themselves’.
Our refreshment and renewal events, whether they are one day or one week, give you the opportunity to take the time needed to learn how to really communicate with God and come into a deeper, closer friendship with him. Teaching from Tracy. Music to heal the heart from me. We would love for you to join us at one – or all!
With every blessing
