“Bethel” is a Hebrew word meaning “The House of God and The Gate of Heaven” (Genesis 28:17-19)

The first building on the site was a prefabricated structure of wood and corrugated iron which was opened on 26th November 1893. It is not known when the name Bethel was given to the building, it appears first in July 1895 on the Certificate of Registration as a Place of Worship.

We are Baptists and carry out Believer’s Baptism and we are also Evangelical.

We believe the Bible to be the perfect and sufficient Word of God for all time and all people.Our Confession of Faith is available for you to further study what we believe; please ask for a copy.

We are a church made up of many people united in our evangelical convictions and priorities.
