About Us 

images-About-Us

Bethel is a lively, forward-looking medium size church near the centre of Whitchurch village, located in the northern suburbs of Cardiff. We appreciate the importance of being part of the local community and seek to share with others, in a relevant and contemporary way,  the hope we believe is found through faith in Jesus.

We seek to give a warm welcome to everybody who attends, and people often comment on the friendliness and openness of the congregation. The morning service regularly attracts guests and visitors and the service reflects that in its format, style and content.

We have a second building a few yards away called the Whitchurch Centre. This is where the majority of the children and youth work takes place.

As a Baptist Union of Great Britain church, we support Baptist Missionary Society (BMS) World Mission and Baptist Home Mission, through monthly giving as a percentage of our general fund. Bethel is also an active supporter of Tearfund.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

 

Where and When

The church is open for activities throughout the week but if you are just seeking us out it is likely that you will want to come and be a part of our Sunday worship which is core to what we are about.
We meet in the main church building (details here) at 10:30 each week. See our calendar to find out plans for the next few weeks.

Accessibility

There is wheelchair access and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer and church lounge.

Our Sunday Services


Sunday morning services are structured but informal. They include a mix of both contemporary and traditional worship songs and hymns, prayers, readings from the Bible and a sermon that unpacks this. Occasionally we will also have specific updates about ways that God has been working through and in people and activities. Once a month we celebrate communion as part of the service. The last Sunday of the month is usually an Altogether Service when all ages are all together in one place for a more relaxed and activity based time of worship.

We aim to finish at about 11.45 to Midday when we serve free tea, coffee and cold drinks. This is a great opportunity to get to meet people.

Sunday Evening services, either in person or online, tend to be shorter and more reflective and are an opportunity to dig a little deeper into our relationship with God.
 

What about the children and youth?

We have a great programme for children of all ages, for more information about what happens please visit our Children and Youth page.

Getting Connected

 

Small Groups

It is often in smaller gatherings that we can really get to know other people. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some in the afternoon and some in the evening either in the church, in peoples’ homes or online    .
If you are interested in joining a Small Group, let us know and we can put you in touch with the small group coordinator who will be more than happy to find a group that is convenient for you and introduce you to the group leader.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the life of our church. If you'd like to find out more, please let us know.
