*** ALL PUBLIC MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED ****

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic there are no public meetings of the church at this time

We are based at Newlands Church, Albert Drive, Morley, West Yorkshire, UK but also meets at other venues around the town. The church was formed in 2000 by local Morley people who believe the gospel and want to share it with others in the town. 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 Newlands Church… details

At 5pm on Sunday 22 December 2019 we held our Family Carol Evening, this included a seasonal play written and performed by the younger church members to illustrate the mystery of Jesus being born at Bethlehem and becoming human.  A chain saw, microwave oven, sleeping bag, christmas tree and presents provided the stage props for them to act out their modern day parable.

Due to generous support from various external bodies we were able to distribute presents and food hampers to people in need in the area. We have also provided Day One Living Word calendars to older people in the town.
