Welcome to the Gospel Standard Bethesda Fund

We provide personal care and accommodation to people aged 65+ who are members of Gospel Standard Strict and Particular Baptist Churches, or who regularly attend Gospel Standard Strict Baptist chapels.

We can provide a service to people with a wide range of personal care needs, including those living with dementia and those with nursing needs who can be treated in our Homes by community/district nurses. Our 'Statement of Purpose' can be seen here. The types of service we offer are; permanent residency, short stays for holidays or respite, and day care. In every case a detailed care plan is prepared with the resident to ensure that a personalised service suitable to their needs is provided. This is then regularly reviewed to ensure that changing requirements are met.  

An important aspect of the life of our Homes is the need to provide a spiritual as well as homelike atmosphere for like-minded people. In line with this ethos there are morning and evening Bible readings and prayer taken by male members of local Gospel Standard Chapels, or when able, male residents.  

Transport to services at local Gospel Standard Strict Baptist Chapels is provided, or for those unable to attend due to infirmity services can be listened to via the relay into the Home. Prayer meetings and hymn singing evenings are held on a regular basis in each of the Homes.   

The two Bethesda Homes are rooted in the communities from which the people using our services come from. This means that people coming into our Homes will often be living among lifelong friends and, in many cases, relatives as well. The management and staff of the Homes (many of whom are also from the same background) are supported by volunteers drawn from local Gospel Standard Strict Baptist chapels. This means that those living in the Homes can stay in contact with the people they knew before moving in.
