I first came to Bethel in 2014 after moving to Newport in 2010. At the time I was a non believer; just accompanying my wife to a new church.
This church was for me a very different experience from the onset, I found the service to be uplifting, positive and upbeat with a great mix of people who made me feel very welcome.
I felt compelled to return to learn more. I attended the Alpha course, a six week introduction into Christianity, which lead me to receive Jesus into my life and I was baptised in November 2015 at the age of 54.
I am grateful for the family I have found in this church, a family of varied backgrounds, ages and cultures but we are on the same journey – so we walk together.
I now lead the Welcome Team with my wife and 16 amazing volunteers so I look forward to welcoming you to Bethel Community Church!
