... a caring Christian community

Giving broken lives new direction

Changed Lives

Roy Oroyemievba
I came to Betel in the year 2001, and through the years by God’s mercy, Betel’s free of charge Christian rehab programme has helped me to overcome what I thought was impossible years past…I’m still all dazed by the effect of how wonderful it feels to be free from the self-destructive intoxication and sometimes mind-numbing habit of drug abuse….I thought I’d never be able to kick the drug habit but more than 10 years on, I could say without fear that I am free at last!… (More)

About Betel

Betel is a Christian community dedicated to restoring people suffering from addiction and substance abuse to healthy, independent lifestyles. We train men and women in a wide range of life and employment skills, enabling them to rebuild a strong work ethic.

All of our residences are drug- and alcohol-free and totally free of charge.

All Betel residents enter and exit voluntarily but we suggest they come for a minimum of 12 to 18 months.

Daily teamwork  in our charitable businesses or workshops i.e. furniture repair, house removals and clearances, garden maintenance and landscaping and charity shop sales, helps to build job skills, diligence, dependability, self-esteem and respect for supervisors.

This therapeutic work  aids the residents’ personal recovery, whilst restoring self-dignity and a sense of purpose.
