A Community of Hope on the way of Jesus

Welcome to Bethesda Methodist Church, Cheltenham.

We are a community of all ages who love God, find life and hope in the way of Jesus, and seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit in all that we do. We hold together the rich and broad tradition of Christianity with insights and understandings from the present, and this is reflected in our theology and variety of worship.

We support a wide programme of worship events and community activities throughout each week; some we organise, some we host, and many of which are detailed on the website. Simply follow the drop down menu to find out more.

There is a link below to the Weekly Notices and you can find a Weekly Thought and Prayer on this website.

We look forward to welcoming you.

29 December: Update on Covid-19 measures at Bethesda

We will return to in-person worship from Sunday 2 January 2022. To enable us to do so safely, we will return to a booking system; details on how to book have been sent to the church email distribution list.

If you are able, please take a lateral flow test before coming to our services. They have been in short supply recently, but can often be ordered online when they are out of stock at pharmacies. Do not attend if your test is positive or if you are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms.

Once at church, wearing of a face covering is mandatory (unless exempt). Please scan the QR code or sign in on arrival and use the hand sanitiser. Leave two seats between you and the next person or household grouping and stay socially distanced wherever possible. Refreshments after the morning service remain suspended until the rate of Covid-19 infections declines.
