Welcome to Morley Community Church
We are one of the newest Morley churches, launched in January 2000. The church is based at Fountain Primary School, Fountain Street, Morley, West Yorkshire, UK but also meets at other venues around the town. We are a local Morley church of people who believe the gospel and want to share it with others. The church is a member of the Evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches.
We are evangelical. Our position is mainstream Chrisitanity, we believe the Bible is entirely trustworthy and reliable and want to proclaim its message.
We are congregational. The church is self governing with members having an important part in running and organising its affairs.
We are Baptist. We encourage Christians to publicly declare their faith in baptism by full immersion.

From Tuesday 4 April to Friday 7 April we ran a Holiday Club for children aged 7-11 in the annexe at Fountain Primary School. The team who were running the holiday club were led by Claudine Uwizeye and they also providing the same event in the afternoons of Monday 3 to Thursday 6 April at Newlands Methodist Church.
From 24 February to 5 March a team of 8 students from Capernwary College assisted us with an outreach programme. During the 10 days the students:
- Ran a charity stall for Leeds City Mission in Queen Street along with a charity Shoe Shine and the distribution of Christian Literature to shoppers.

The students visited for a planning weekend on 28 & 29 January and were welcomed to the town by the Mayor.
Harry Stanton went to be with the Lord on 11 January 2017 following a period of illness. Harry joined the church after first making contact at a pensioners lunch run by a Capernwray team and was a faithful attender at all subsequent meetings and a good friend to all; he will be missed. On Monday 13 February we held a farewell service for him at Newlands Methodist Church followed by the committal at Cottingley Crematorium.
Working in conjunction with Morley Elderly Action the church has distributed Day One Living Word Calendars to many of the older people living in the town.
At 5pm on Sunday 11 December the Annexe was full with standing room only as visitors to church were treated to a German Nativity Play which was acted by adults with a real live baby as the infant child Jesus. The play Wurzener Krippenspiel was translated from the german original by church Gap Year Worker Johanna Schmidt who also directed the event.
There are further pictures of the event on the 13 December 2016 church Facebook page.
