Our story

Bethesda is an evangelical Baptist Church made up of around 200 people. We meet in a landmark building in the heart of Ipswich town centre, which is very well known in the town, but the Church is the people who have long established relationships in Ipswich.

Our leadership

The Church is led by a Ministry team who oversee the public ministry of the Church and the key spiritual matters, and our Deacons who oversee the practical running of the life of the Church.

The Ministry Team is led by the Rev Andrew Docherty.

Youth & Church Work

Youth work is an important part of church life, with a team to support the continued development of our young people.
