Bethesda has a strong tradition of supporting the community both locally and town-wide and various activities take place in the hall and in the church itself.
Locally, this ranges from parent and child groups, to acting as a polling station for elections, to a meeting place for the Bethesda Scouts and Guides and Brownies groups. We also get involved in the street fairs and events in the nearby Bath Road and Suffolk Road when the opportunity arises
We host a variety of town-wide groups ranging from choir practice for various choirs, to Art classes, Al Anon, Country Dancing and a support group for people who are visually impaired.
We strongly support several local charities and organisations including G.A.R.A.S. working with refugees, Open Door for the homeless, the Food Bank, Gardners Lane Centre and several others. We believe in playing an active role in the community whenever the opportunity arises.
