About Us


Thank you for taking time to visit our website. We hope that you find the information useful, and that it helps you to gain an understanding of our church, who we are, what we believe, and what our purpose is.

Bethany is a warm, loving, Bible believing church which seeks to “Love God and Love Others”.

If you think that church is a place for old ladies and young children – think again! Our church attracts a wide spectrum of people: men and women, single and married, old and young, locals and also those from further afield. It’s a family which you are welcome to join. 

It’s not perfect, because we are not perfect! But we have found and know the forgiveness of God through Jesus Christ, and our relationship with Him is the vital bond that brings us together.

When you walk through our doors you will see all types of people; you may see people in suits and ties, you may see people in jeans and T-shirt’s. It doesn’t matter what you wear to church, as long as you come. We just want you to know that as soon as you walk through the doors you are welcomed.

We encourage and invite you to come along to one of our services, and we look forward to meeting you. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew 22:36 - 40

Our Church

Bethany Baptist Church was established in 1900 as a direct result of the growing need for places to worship during the Welsh Revival of the late 1800’s. As a church it has always had the sufficiency of the Scripture for it’s foundation, maintaining an emphasis on Christ as Saviour.

Throughout our history, Bethany’s succession of Pastors have shown a spiritual leadership, progressive vision, and evangelistic zeal that have made Bethany the Church it is today. We preach Christ crucified, risen, and coming again!, and our goal is to engage our community and impact the World with the Message of Jesus Christ.

We love God, love His Word and seek to love one another with a clear emphasis on Bible teaching and preaching in all of our meetings, our aim is to help you understand your purpose and destiny as prescribed in God’s inspired Word.
