Welcome to Bethel Community Church.
We believe that church shouldn’t be a boring place where people go on Sundays 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, we love people and we want the best for them.
Bethel Community Church is such a church and part of our vision is to be seen, heard and felt in our city. We have set up a separate charity called The Gap - Wales which manages all the church's community activities which include working with and supporting various groups of people including refugees and asylum seekers, victims of human trafficking, parents, children & young people.
If you are visiting our city or looking for a church, we would love to see you.
