Over the past 103 years Bethel Church has been around we have met at various locations across Otley.
In March 2020 we finally purchased a permanent home for our church family- 20-24 Westgate (formerly Artamis Gifts). The building is currently undergoing renovations to make it suitable to meet in. See below for updates:
Update: November 2020
A kitchen area has been put into the back hall and that area is nearly finished, and is currently being painted. An extra room has been partitioned upstairs for a Sunday school room for the older children. Work on the upstairs windows will start soon, as well as work on the disabled loos.
Update: June 2020
Renovations have now begun. Originally we were hoping to be ready by mid Autumn, but lockdown has pushed this back a bit.
Here are some of the things we will be doing:
- Putting in toilets downstairs including disabled ones.
- Making the upstairs suitable for our children’s groups
- Putting in a small kitchen downstairs so that we can serve tea and coffee.
- Improving the fire escapes and making them suitable for wheelchairs
- Installing a stairlift
When everything is ready we plan to have an open day so you can look round our new facilities.
