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.

Building Work Completed

A few months ago we obtained a grant and have had some funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund, CADW, Allchurches Trust, James Pantyfedwen Foundation and the members of Bethel Community Church, to repair and restore elements of our building and ensure the church's history is kept within Newport. The first phase of exterior work has now been completed.

We're busy putting together some historical information which is available to view or download on our History section.
