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.

Happy Birthday Greetings to Marjorie Picton who is 89 on

3 September and Sheila Lewis on 24th. May God bless you both.

We pray for all at Bethel who are going through difficult times, that they may feel the strength of God’s loving arms around them. We especially think of Babs King.

Congratulations to Trevor and Diane’s daughter Charlotte Thomas who has been accepted at King’s College London to study international relations and intelligence. Well done Charlotte.

Let not your heart be troubled — Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
