Bethel Community Church


Welcome to the Bethel Community Church

We believe that church shouldn’t be a boring place where people go on Sunday mornings just to sing hymns and listen to a sermon. We believe that Church is an active group of Christian people who want to follow Jesus, worship God, to be an influential part of the local community and to make a difference in people’s lives. We love God and we love people and want the best for them.

Bethel Community Church is such a church, part of our vision is to be seen, heard and felt in our city.
We have a number of teams that work with various groups of people; from the homeless, students, parents, children, refugees and more. You can find out more about ministries and see our faith in action.

If you are visiting our city or looking for a church, we would love to see you.
Come and worship with us at 10:30am every Sunday.



The God Who Comes Down

Do you want to understand more about the Bible - how the Old Testament connects with the New - and grow in your knowledge of God?

Then join us with people from all over Newport for an evening with Desi Maxwell from ‘Xplorations’ to watch his DVD with fantastic views of the whole breadth of Israel. He will trace the God who came down on the mountain, in the Tent, Temple and in the flesh and he shows us, too, the relationship of the Jewish people and the Torah. 

Bethel Community Church | 13th October | 7-9pm
