Our Vision                              

To be the Christ-centred, welcoming “Beacon in the Bay” that cares for and grows its family, has a generous heart for the community and is rooted in God’s word.

Who are we?

Set on the west coast of the beautiful island of Jersey, we are an enthusiastic evangelical church.  Bethesda Family is a welcoming church for people of all ages.  We have a heart for the whole church family and our lively, informal style embraces all who join us.  Our vibrant children and youth church offers creative and messy ways for children, young people and their families to connect with God.  Our mid-week children and family groups offer a place for people from the community to connect and paddle their feet in the beginnings of faith.

(We currently have 15 - 25 children who are  split into 3 groups aged 0-14 years.  Hot Chocolate for the 9 - 14 years, Bush Bible Group for 5 to 8 years and Tiddlers for 0 - 4 years.  All our sessions are fun and creative involving games, crafts, bible stories and singing.)

Our worship leaders, band and singers of all ages help to lead worship.
