There were two Sundays in June when we did not hold a service in Morley.

On Sunday 9 June Tim Lee was baptised at Gateway Church in York. The whole church decided to support him and we went to York.

On Sunday 16 June we all went to visit our EFCC prayer partner church, Latimer Congregational Church in Beverley. After the morning service we had a time of fellowship together as Latimer CC kindly provided lunch and then we spent the afternoon looking around the town.
