Prayer for the week

“Christianity is a religion rooted in the most ordinary yet subversive practice: a dinner table where everyone is welcome.”  (Sara Miles Take This Bread 2007).

Food is very important at Bethesda! Sharing a meal is the making of community. 

The Lunch Club meets most Tuesdays for the sharing of friendship and a hot meal. ( Booking required).

The Welcome Club continues on into the afternoon, providing entertainment, community, activities and song.

Soup Lunch happens quarterly on the first Wednesday of March, June, September and December – serving a variety of delicious home cooked soups with a never-ending supply of fresh bread and butter!

The Spice of Life is eating a meal with others and sharing in conversation and friendship. The Curry club is for those who enjoy a curry! An opportunity to get together to try out Cheltenham’s numerous curry houses every other month.

Bread@Bethesda meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month – an opportunity to make, bake and break bread, sharing in conversation and community.

Saturday Morning Coffee is just that – alongside a tempting selection of mouth-watering home baked cakes.

Throughout the year, teams go into action to provide wonderful celebratory lunches – a chance to meet new people, laugh with old friends and enjoy good food together.

Bethesda also supports the work of the Cheltenham Food Bank.
