About Bethel

Here at Bethel we are seeking to become a vibrant fellowship, visibly working and witnessing in the village, our places of work and the surrounding area, united in Christ by a personal faith. We believe that every member has a ministry and we aim to serve God wherever we are.

Our leadership team was headed until recently by the Rev. Keith Jones and the Rev. Ann Thelwell. At present we are in an interegnum and are looking for part time ministry in the near future.

Sunday Worship

Sunday Worship

On Sundays the whole church gathers together at 10.30am for a service which contains worship through music and prayer, as well as time devoted to hearing God through the teaching of the Bible. We have some 'All Age' services but usually the children and young people go to their own 'Junior Church' mid-way through the service and rejoin us for refreshments afterwards. Communion take place on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Everyone is welcome to join with us, however young or old. 

Bethel Youth

A small youth group meets in the main hall alternate Sunday evenings. Activities vary but usually there are games and a topical discussion. If you are secondary school age why not come and join in? 

Bible Study & Discussion

Thursdays at 2pm

This is a chance to really spend time thinking how God's word is relevant to us today and getting to know each other better. An afternoon of laughter, learning and fellowship, is always followed by a cuppa and a cake.
