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 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 a practice space for various choirs, to Art classes, Al Anon and Country Dancing.
We support several local charities and organisations including GARAS 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.
