What To Expect

What To Expect

The people you meet when you visit Bethany will be nice and friendly.
We look forward to meeting you.

We care about you, not about what you’re wearing. We don’t care who you’re voting for or how many tattoos you have. We want to welcome you and provide a space where you feel loved and accepted whatever your style or circumstance. We want our church to feel like “home” to you, a place of friendship and belonging.

We meet at 100 Church Road Gatley at 10:30 am every Sunday. We’re next to Gatley Physiotherapy Clinic tucked back off the road behind some trees, so sometimes people miss us. We’re saving a seat for you!  You can also visit our Facebook Page.

If you’ve never been and you’re considering coming, here’s what you should expect..

Welcoming people

We love to see new faces. But, we don’t always recognise the first-time visitors, so feel free to say, “This is my first time” and we’ll guide you in!

A Casual Atmosphere

Come as you are, we want you to feel at home. We will not single you out publicly or ask you to say anything, and we do not expect guests to contribute anything financially. After the service, grab a hot cup of free tea or coffee from our cafe.  We’d love you to join us!

A Fun, Safe environment for kids

Kids love it at Bethany! All of our Children Ministry volunteers have a commitment to the welfare and well-being of children and families and each has undergone mandatory government background checks.

Practical teaching

Teaching that connects the words of the Bible to everyday life. Music that is lively, including keyboards, drums and guitars. We love to be creative and enjoy God in a vibrant way.

We trust the Bible completely even when we don’t fully understand it. We cherish the Kingdom of God and want to play our part in investing and multiplying all aspects of God’s work, locally and globally.

If you have any specific questions, email us at [email protected], and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
