About Betel – rescuing those addicted
Betel began in Madrid in 1985 when a small group of WEC missionaries began to care for the needs of drug addicts and marginalized people living on the streets.
Today Betel has become a global phenomenon, established in over 100 urban areas in 23 countries worldwide.
Betel’s mission is to bring long-term freedom and restoration to men and women broken by drug and alcohol abuse. Betel accomplish this by building values, skills and character through living, working and worshipping together in a caring Christian community.
Each Betel residential centre is run by men and women who have themselves experienced freedom from addiction.
"Our end goal is to help people not only escape addiction, but become productive, trustworthy men and women of character when they leave our community. We believe that life is never hopeless." Anthony heads up Betel Manchester. Read Anthony's story
