Our friend and longest-standing member of Bethel, Margaret Carpenter passed away last week. Margaret had been attending Bethel since she was a child and used to walk from her home in Court Colman every week with her family. She faithfully attended meetings at the church as her health allowed. She also served the church as organist and deacon for many years and will be greatly missed.
We offer our sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. The funeral arrangements are as follows:
Tue, 15th January
1.45pm Service at Bethel Baptist Church, Laleston
2.45pm Service at Coychurch Crematorium
3.30pm Open invitation to the Court Colman Hotel for tea
Exciting things are happening at our local bible college, WEST! You might want to take a look at the new WEST website, but also have a read of this news item, soon to be published in Evangelicals Now, describing a new partnership between WEST and Porterbrook Network:
There is also news about initiatives in the Welsh valleys that should be of interest to local people.
