Starting from Sunday the 9th of January, a new timeslot of 6pm, but the same great group. We will be watching the evening service together and using the questions or Scripture to discuss application or findings from what we have heard, followed by some social time to decompress, and chat about life together.

This group will be flexible depending on the caution needed with corona case numbers. Whilst we aim to meet for in-person gatherings as much as possible, where this is not safe or possible due to isolation, we can also meet using Zoom.

Week groups!

Bethel Teens – Tuesday – School Years 5 – 9

On a Tuesday night from 7pm – 8:15pm we meet at the Whitchurch centre, for some great group games that are fun but encourage activity, teamwork, and friendship building. We then dive into some Bible teaching, along with healthy discussion and understanding-growing together as a group.

This term we are looking at an overview of some of the Psalms, understanding what these songs and poems mean, how they speak or give us an idea of who God is and how he can work in our lives.

Other week groups TBD…
