About Bethel

Bethel is an Evangelical Church based in Otley and Ilkley. We are a group of people who aim to live our lives with Jesus Christ, our God and Saviour, at the centre of everything. We aim to make the message of Jesus, and the teaching of the Bible, accessible, understandable, relevant and available to everyone. We want to serve the whole community around us in this beautiful part of Wharfedale, Yorkshire which is within easy reach of Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate.

Please have a look around this website; you’ll find out a lot about us, who we are, what we do and why we do it. If you live in the area we would love to see you sometime. Please come along anytime!

For people who would really like to find out more about Christianity, starting with the absolute basics we run courses such as Christianity Explored and Glad You Asked. You will also find any of our Sunday meetings a good opportunity to find out more.
