Croeso / Welcome
Bethania is a church community in the village of Leeswood in North East Wales. The chapel we meet in is named after a village in Israel that Jesus often visited when he walked the Earth, 2000 years ago. In Hebrew, 'Bethania
' means ‘house of the poor
That's appropriate for us. By global economic standards we in the West are well off. But Jesus spoke of people being poor on many different levels, spiritually as well as as economically. We need to learn to become rich in the things Jesus valued: forgiveness, compassion, justice and the love of God.
He said: "Blessed are you who are poor for yours is the Kingdom of God
" (Luke 6:20)
Here in Bethania Leeswood, we are seeking to be a community centred on Jesus and the things that make us truly rich.
