Betel – restoring broken lives
Founded by WEC in Spain, and established in the UK in 1996, Betel is a national success story for WEC International. We’re effective, sustainable and entirely independent of Government funding. Our charitable model is unique: we offer men, women and families opportunities to transform their lives through peer-led, caring Christian community and skilled work.
Many individuals graduate our community as entrepreneurs and mentors, and many even go on to help set up and run new Betel centres. In this way, Betel has grown internationally from its beginnings in Madrid, Spain, to helping desperate people in 100 cities and 25 nations around the globe.
Our centres are entirely free of charge and operate no waiting lists. All Betel asks of its residents is a sincere desire to change their life. If they’re willing to work hard, embrace daily worship, and become an active member of our community, then together we can turn their life around. This is the story of thousands that have found transformation in Betel and have gone on to help others like them.
