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
