A community of hope in the way of Jesus

Welcome to the website of 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 also a link below to the Weekly Notices.

We look forward to welcoming you.
