Visit Us

Whether you join us for worship on Sunday morning, take a class with the Bethesda Center for Spirituality, or simply stroll our campus to be inspired by our beautiful building and grounds, we welcome you to Bethesda-by-the-Sea!

At Bethesda, we welcome all of God’s people. As Jesus loves all, we strive to love and include all in Jesus’ name, unconditionally and without regard to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, culture, age, national origin, socio-economic status, family configuration, education, physical and mental challenges, or spiritual and religious traditions.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Church Tours

We invite you to join us for our free, docent-led church tours to learn more about our sacred space. Our gothic revival church building is full of rich history, beautiful stained glass windows, wood carvings, and art. You’re also invited to stroll through our courtyard and gardens, visiting our koi pond (where you can feed the fish) and outdoor chapel.

Guided tours are offered:
• Every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m., except during the months of June, July, and August. 
• 2nd and 4th Sundays following the main church service (from November to May, the main service begins at 11:00 am; otherwise it begins at 10:00 am).

The church is open most weekdays and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The church will be closed to tours during weddings, funerals, and other church services and events. Check with the church office at (561) 655-4554.

Tours for local schools and groups are available by appointment. Contact the church office.
