Coming to Bethel

Most of the roads around the chapel have parking restrictions which only apply 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday, which means parking is not a problem for most services. In addition there is a car park between Stuart Street and Regent Street on Sundays. At other times there is the multi-storey car park in Regent Street and the public car park in South Road, both within 200m of the chapel.

Welcome to

Bethel Strict Baptist Chapel, Luton

  We are a Baptist church, completely separate from the Baptist Union, independent and self-governing. In doctrine we hold fast to the doctrines of salvation by grace, commonly called Calvinistic, contending earnestly for the work of the Holy Spirit in the new birth, and this bringing forth the fruit of a godly, upright life.

  We use the Authorised or King James version of the Bible, considering this is the most accurate translation and faithful to the original languages. We sing traditional hymns. Our hymnbook is Gadsby’s Selection.

Times of Services (God willing):

Sundays: 10.30 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.

Sunday School 2.30 p.m.

That in all things, He [the Lord Jesus Christ] might have the pre-eminence.
