North Kirklees & Morley Resource Centre

“Can you get us some gluten free communion wafers? Some napkins with the Easter message printed on? Folders to put our music in? Drip trays for candles?” Just some of the requests we have dealt with at the Resource Centre in Batley.

We aim to relieve ministers, lay employees and churches generally of as much administration as possible. We also produce posters, reports, newsletters, tickets, orders of service, powerpoint slides for meetings and services.

A state of the art photocopying machine enables us to offer a competitively priced printing service, to churches, charities and community organisations.
We try and sources all kinds of supplies for churches and individuals, and are an agent for Methodist Publishing, meaning we can pass on discount on many items.

We stock and sell a range of Traidcraft products and can supply churches with sale or return goods for stalls and events.

The Centre holds a wide range of resources - books, DVDs, magazines - for worship leaders, youth and junior church leaders, study and fellowship groups and for general interest. We have all copies to date of Roots (both Adult and Young People) and subscribe to the Methodist Recorder and several other Christian publications.
The Resource Centre used to occupy the two lower floors of the building adjacent to the former Central Methodist Church in Dewsbury (now the Elim Pentecostal church) but has recently relocated to Batley Central Methodist Church.

The ground floor was the ‘shop window’ of the Centre, providing the opportunity to declare our faith to passers-by, and to advertise events and services; it was also used for meetings. This was where you would find all our resources, printing and coffee making facilities and much more, and is where the volunteers worked.

We could not operate without our volunteers who can be found stapling magazines, folding plans, cataloguing resources, chatting to visitors, pricing Traidcraft goods ... (or just trying to complete the Methodist Recorder cross-word!). Please come and see us and what we do, we'd love to see you!
