Bethel, Freystrop


Bethel is a happy little Church, serving the small village of Freystrop near Haverfordwest, in Pembrokeshire. It has a true sense of friendship, which is seen at its best at Celebration services like Harvest and the Midnight Communion at Christmas.

We try to be at the heart of our Community, caring for all and sharing in all the events of village life. A major village celebration of the year 2000 began in Bethel with a crowded and joyful service on the morning of 31st December, 1999. It was continued in August, 2000, when we held an unveiling ceremony to commemorate two ceramic plaques we have had made by a local artist, Paul Webb, for the Church walls. One of these illustrates the Bible story, while the other shows the history of Congregationalism.

If you are in the area on holiday, do come and visit us. Our Sunday Services are held at 9:30am. To contact us, please e-mail the Minister, Rev. Steve Woods, or you can contact us through our Secretary, Mrs. Esme Utting.

There has been a lot of paperwork to complete for the URC - not least the 16 page risk assessment! We will initially meet every fortnight and have to book places on the Wednesday before. All the government guidelines will be met of course, but we look forward to the time when we can sing as well. Worship together will definitely be a blessing for us all.

A small boy went to church with his grandmother and joined her when she quietly slipped off the pew to kneel and pray. He even copied her example of burying her face in her hands. After a few seconds his curiosity got the better of him. “Who are we hiding from, Granny ?”
