Children and Youth

Bethel Kids   Stay tuned after the service for Bethel Kids, we continue delving into the fruitbowl of the spirit, grabbing all the tasty gifts on offer. This week we look at Goodness.  What is goodness, and why should we desire to be good?

Bethel Teens and Bethel Youth There will be no weeknight teens and youth meeting over the half term.

Teens and Youth – Meet @ the Park
We are excited to announce that we have arranged for the teens and youth group to meet at the car park in Hailey Park on Sunday the 6th June at 2:30pm for some outdoor fun in the park-a chance to catch up IRL (in real life!). Bring a drink, snack and something to sit on if you would like. We are not 100% sure what the weather is going to be like, so keep an eye out  in order to wear suitable clothing!

 

Family News

Some of you will remember Brian and Sue Dodd, who were part of Bethel before moving to Pontypridd. Tragically their son, Joe, has taken his own life after years of battling with anxiety and depression. Please do pray for them at this painfully difficult time. If you would like to be in touch with them, you can get in touch with Lorraine for their address. May the Lord tenderly uphold and deeply comfort them.

Some of you may remember Jon Birch (he was a ministerial student placed with us a few years back). He and Emma had a vision to buy a home where they could welcome people to stay with them and grow in discipleship together. After years of looking, working and praying – they’ve recently  picked up the keys! God’s promises *never* fail!

If you know of anyone who doesn’t have internet access and would appreciate the Sunday sermons on a CD or USB stick, please let Lorraine know and she will arrange to have these sent to them.

Lorraine is working from home and is contactable via email. Lorraine goes to the office once a week to check the answer machine, post and all buildings

News to Celebrate

If you, or someone you know,  are celebrating a very special birthday or anniversary then please do let us know so we can celebrate as a church family.

Collecting used Stamps to help fund BMS work

Please continue to save used postage stamps for the BMS stamps bureau. During the first quarter of 2020 £3500 was raised for BMS by the bureau. We look forward to being able to collect the stamps you are saving as soon as possible. Marion Rushton.

Can you help?

If you are able and willing to help during this period with phoning those who are isolated or delivering essential supplies to people’s doorsteps, then please do be in touch and let Jon know. Equally, if you know of people in any kind of difficulty due to self-isolation, please do pass that on.

Problem accessing online content?

If you have had a problem accessing the online blogs, sermons or newssheet, please let Lorraine in the office know as she can arrange to send these out in the post (including CD versions of the services)
