There will be no Open Days held during the winter months of January 2016 to March 2016
The Friends of Bethesda have run a series of well attended monthly Open Days in Bethesda Methodist Chapel following the completion of Phase I repairs in September 2007. The Open Days have usually included a performance by a local choir. The Friends of Bethesda have raised a very useful £17,000 as a result of these events which is helping towards funding the phase II repairs.
The Friends of Bethesda will hold open days to raise funds for Phase Three of the restoration of Bethesda Chapel. As the chapel has no heating the Friends will not hold open days during the winter months but the chapel will still be available for organised guided tours.
The Friends of Bethesda can open the chapel for organised tours by History Societies, schools or colleges, and recognised institutions or societies. The tours will begin with a history talk about the chapel and then a guided tour of the chapel and churchyard by knowledgeable guides. Please be aware that Bethesda has no toilet facilities and we do not allow food or drink inside the chapel.
