Bethany Church enjoys a service of worship that includes a variety of ages and cultures.  We blend both ancient and contemporary expressions of worship in a way that is truly reflective of our congregation and context.  It is often said that nobody worships quite like us. We hope you’ll gather before God with us and experience it for yourself.
