Our Mission

We want people to find life, healing and freedom. 

Following Jesus is life transforming, purpose giving and His church is the hope of the world.

A community of faith, hope and love in Bath, influencing and resourcing far beyond. 

Lead Pastor

Betsy is an author, entrepreneur, practising psychotherapist, complex-trauma specialist & the Lead Pastor of Freedom Centre UK. Betsy has founded several charities that work directly with those who are impacted by trauma and consults both Governmental and Non-Governmental Agencies in over 21 different countries.  

 

But above all else, seeing people's lives transformed and broken hearts healed has been Betsy's deepest pursuit since she was a teenager.

She is a firm believer that following Jesus is life transforming, and there has never been a bigger need in our world for a church that is trauma informed and where we see the kind of stuff that Jesus did happen.

Betsy is married to Andrew and a mother to four wonderful sons.

Our Key Values

OUR VISION

Isaiah 58

6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? 

Isaiah 61

1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and to comfort all who mourn.

We finished building our purpose built church auditorium in June 2019. It took us 11 years of working towards getting planning permission to be able to build it. Our doors are now open to everyone who wants to come and find out why we, as a group of people, have all sacrificed money to build somewhere that will last for generations to come as a place to find Jesus and the hope He brings. We meet here on Sundays and for larger mid week meetings and are excited about the way the space will be used for future projects too!
