HOW WE DO CHURCH

SIX PURPOSES OF CHURCH
Discipleship - Fellowship - Ministry - Outreach - Prayer - Worship
The Six Purposes of Church is a way for us to measure the activity and health of the fellowship; providing a system that allows us to keep in touch with what is happening, what might need developing, what might need introducing, or what might need changing.

Everything that we do, or might do, at Bethel fits into at least one of the Six Purposes, and through the allocation of oversight to our deacons we have a way to make sure that what we are doing is purposeful and in line with where we believe God is calling and leading us.

You can find out more about each of the Six Purposes by clicking on the links below.
