We know it can be a little daunting to step into a new thing, especially when you're not exactly sure what to expect! Here are some FAQs to give you a picture of what Bethany looks like week-to-week.
WHO ARE WE?
In short we are people from a variety of cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds who are united in our love of Jesus. Differences like these would seem to separate but in Jesus we come together as family who honour and value one another as we celebrate life together as we worship, as we learn, as we play. Our greatest treasure is that we believe Jesus is exactly who He says He is, God’s Son who came to save and forgive us and make us new. We don’t pretend to be perfect, all together people because really, who is? Instead we come together to learn and grow in our faith where we love Jesus and in turn, love the people with whom we live, work and play. In this, it is our desire, to become more and more like Jesus.
Come and join us as we discover more and more about Him.

What's happening at Bethany in the New year?
In January 2023, we will be starting:
- The Alpha Course
- Craving Cafe
- Regular events and Programs
- ESL Classes (beginners, intermediate and advance)
The Alpha Course
Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a space, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God.
The Alpha Film Series is designed for today’s audience. It was filmed all around the world, and features interviews with world-famous leaders and inspiring stories. Two new hosts, Toby Flint and Gemma Hunt, join Nicky Gumbel to unpack the basics of the Christian faith in an updated and engaging way.
We will be running ALPHA on Fridays starting on January 20, 2023 - March 31, 2023 at 7:00 PM at the church.
