Our Sunday morning worship starts 11am and finishes around 12.30pm, and our evening worship starts at 5:00pm. Both are followed by an opportunity to receive personal prayer. We welcome people to stick around after service for refreshments and fellowship.
Absolutely everyone is welcome, whether you've never been to church before, or have been a believer for years.
At Bethel Community Church, our desire is threefold:
To be a church where people who don’t normally go to church, love to attend.
To lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
To equip people for their purpose in life.
Too often, church doesn’t feel like a safe place for people who feel far from God. They may experience judgment and even rejection. But that’s not what Jesus intended when he established His church. He meant for the church to be a magnet for everyone, no matter what their background, to be a place where they could find love, peace and reconciliation with God.
Bethel Community Church is a non-denominational, charismatic church for all ages in the heart of downtown Aberavon, Port Talbot. The church began March 2014 under the leadership of Pastor Liz Hill O'Shea with a handful of members, and has been steadily growing since. In 2019, Liz handed over the leadership to Pastor Shaun O'Keefe and Pastor Wayne Morris who now faithfully oversee the church.
Sundays begin with a worship service at 11am, and our style is contemporary and comfortable. After service, everyone is welcome to stay for refreshments or personal prayer. During this Covid pandemic, we use safe distancing, hand sanitising, PPE and steam deep cleaning.
“The only time I’ve been to church is either for a funeral or a wedding. To be honest, I thought church was only for religious people. I’m so glad I found the courage to attend this church! It has really made a difference to my life. I’ve found new friends who support what I’m going through, and who pray for me when times get tough…which is a lot! And I’ve discovered that God is real.”
“I had no idea that God loved me until I came to this church.”
