What's on

Church Ministries


I know the journey seem so long. You feel
you're walking on your own. But there has
never been a step where you've walked out
all alone. Troubled soul, don't loose your
heart cause joy and peace He brings, and
the beauty that's in store outweighs the hurt
of life's sting.

I can't wait until that day where the very
one I've lived for always will wipe away the
sorrow that I've faced. To touch the scars
that rescued me from a life of shame and
misery. This is why this is why I sing.

But I hold on to this hope and the promise
that He brings, that there will be place
with no more suffering.

New Year Focus

For many people the beginning of another year heralds a fresh start and new challenges. It is good to reflect on a year past but we must move on and maintain our focus on the Lord whom we follow. For those of us at Bethany we continue to maintain our witness and testimony for the Lord Jesus remembering his goodness and proclaiming the good news of the gospel, despite the difficult times in the age we live

Tribute from Friends and Neighbours

It is with great sympathy and loss on learning of the passing of our friend and brother Mr William Wilson. Willie served the Lord so willingly for many years until he took ill.

He had many interests including music and poetry and Sunday school work.

He enjoyed when well enough to attend the Friends and Neighbours hour on a Thursday. We will miss Willie and will remember him and the whole family in our prayers.


Pray for the Bethany outreach work

Mission Focus

Over the coming months we will be having a more extensive report from Marc Campbell on his visit to Poland last year. We will also be having some slides from the trip that Liz McKinnon had to Albania with the GLO team, which was quite an adventure for all concerned.


Bible Teaching

There are many in the church who take advantage of the recordings of the services, which provide an opportunity to catch up on services missed or to listen again to some good Bible teaching. There is also the possibility to listen again on the Bethany website thanks to Graham, who is able to make the recordings available for download.


News

The Wilson family would like to thank all at Bethany for their support over recent years which was a difficult time for them. There were over 150 who attended the Thanksgiving Service for William Wilson on Thursday 8th January which was of great encouragement to the family.

Continue to remember in prayer at this time those who are unable to come to the services as they would like, particularly Ella McAlpine, Irene McCaig, Ena Dickson, Cathy Carduff and Cathy Leitch.
