Bethany Church of God - Southall , London
Bethany Church of God was planted in Southall in the year 1995. The primary aim was to meet the spiritual needs of the Tamil speaking Christian community in Southall. It was a very humble beginning. A young man residing in one room, with not much of an experience in planting the church or with a great name to be recognized among the leaders of the church. But he had a tremendous zeal, determination and above all wholehearted love to serve the Lord under any circumstances, trials and tribulations.
Knocking at every door in every street in Southall tirelessly with faith and confidence as his armor, finally he achieved in bringing one Sinhala lady to his so called Church. Through prayers and hard work this miniscule church gathered momentum, thanks to the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Rev. T M I Sathiyaraj, as he is affectionately known today came into being. Slowly, but steadily the membership grew more and more. People joined the church. People from different nationality, culture, language and background were added to our Church. For every one Bethany Church of God has become the home away from home. Broken hearted, worried, anxiety of the future, name any psychological and physiological problems, there is Bethany Church of God. Where through prayers and worship miracles happen and the demons fly away.
In our Southall church we have regular services in English on Sunday mornings at 10.30 am and on special days like Christmas, Easter or any other important days we announce the church timings and programme well in advance for the convenience of our members and believers. Like wise Tamil service is celebrated between 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm. Services in English and Sinhala are also conducted regularly at 10.30am at Bethany House, Park Avenue, Southall. Bethany Church of God today has a membership of 600 believers from all walks of life. You are all welcome to attend any or all of our church activities and be blessed
