Daily Devotional – Our Daily Bread
At the age of fifty-four I entered the Milwaukee marathon with two goals—to finish the race and to do it under five hours. My time would have been amazing if the second 13.1 miles went as well as the first. But the race was grueling, and the second-wind strength I’d...read more

We are a small, but friendly congregation that is seeking to teach and understand the message of the Bible, which is just as relevant today as it ever was. Our aim is to glorify God and enjoy a real relationship with Him through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.
Please come in and have a look around. If there is anything else you would like to know about our church please contact us here, or call the phone number above.

Open Doors is our way of saying ‘Welcome to Bethany – you are important for us! ‘
This is just a relaxed time around a cup of tea/coffee for anyone who needs a break from the hustle and bustle of this life to think about their soul and ponder on what really matters in life.
Come and go as you like, but do come back next week again!
Why should we interact together and study the Bible? What is our goal? What are we after?
We lead Bible studies to learn about the Bible, to develop more theological insight or biblical understanding, to grow in faith as Christians, to get to know people better, to introduce others to Jesus (Acts 17:2-3), etc.
Above all, we attend Bible studies to find eternal life by getting to know God, His Son Jesus Christ (John 17:3) and comprehend the work of the Holy Spirit. God has revealed Himself through Jesus and we meet here in Bethany to study His word and have a personal encounter with the Living Word.
Come along every Wednesday evening from 7.15 to explore various books of the Bible and get better acquainted with the Author!
This is a more formal service where all those who know and love Jesus Christ as their Saviour and are following Him as Lord are welcome to take part.
The Lord’s Supper is found in the Gospels (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:17-25; Luke 22:7-22; and John 13:21-30). The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 11:23-29 : “Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself” (1 Corinthians 11:27-29). What really means to partake of the bread and the cup “in an unworthy manner.” It may mean to ignore the true meaning of the bread and wine and to forget the tremendous price our Savior has paid for our salvation. Or to allow the religious ritual to become a dead and formal habit, nothing more and to come to the Lord’s Supper with sin in your heart (gossip, malice, anger, etc.)
What Paul is clearly saying is that we should examine ourselves before eating the bread and drinking the cup, taking them with reverence and gratitude, not out of habit or as a religious ritual.
