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.
