COVID-19: Bethesda Chapel Response

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 23 March,  and the Welsh Parliament  (Senedd) announcements on 15th May, Bethesda is adhering to the latest guidelines which requires churches to close both for private worship, public services and social gatherings. The building at Bethesda Chapel is now closed until restrictions are lifted and/or relaxed by the Senedd.  When we do re-open we will take appropriate measures to continue safeguarding everyone who comes into Bethesda, in line with the Senedd advice and good practice.


How will Bethesda Members and Friends be able to keep in touch for worship and fellowship during closure of the building?

We are embracing available technology by conducting a range of both Sunday and Mid-week services and activities on line via Facebook and /or Zoom, for which there is also a telephone dial in facility for those not familiar with computers! Please see details on the home page and under the media section of this web site.

Who can I contact if I need to speak to someone from Bethesda?

Sadly, funerals may now only happen at a Crematorium or graveside. If you would like to speak to one of the leadership at Bethesda for prayer or support, please do contact us
