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.
Service. Our main Sunday Service is held at 10am in Fountain Primary School… details

On Saturday 18 June we held an Away Day at the Methodist Lakeside Centre at Newmillerdam. This was a time of fellowship and reflection with opportunity to review recent church activities and plan for the future.
In the week leading up to Pentecost we organised a series of additional prayer meetings with a special devotional booklet concentrating our thoughts and prayers.
On Sunday 15 May 2016 we joined with other Morley Churches to celebrate Pentecost in the Park; the event was held in Scatcherd Park and involved a time of praise and worship.
On the mornings of Tuesday 12 – Friday 15 April 2016 we ran a holiday club for children aged 7-11 years at the Wesley Playhouse in Howden Clough. The activities, following the ‘Run the Race’ theme, were organised for us by Claudine Uwizeye. The week concluded with a special Family Breakfast and Prizegiving Craft Cafe at 10am on Sunday 17 April in the Annexe at Fountain Primary School.
Claudine also ran a similar Holiday Club at Newlands Methodist Church on the afternoons of Monday 11, Tuesday 12, Thursday 14 and Friday 15 April from 2 to 4pm.
