About Bethany

Bethany Congregational Church originally started as an outreach to the Japanese community in Santa Barbara in 1913. A century later, Bethany has experienced a great deal of change as we became a multi-cultural and multi-generational church. Our commitment to Japan is even deeper within the fabric of our community although the demographics of our church have changed to become a melting pot. Bethany provides both English and Japanese speaking Sunday services and about once a month we have a combined service in English with some Japanese translation.
