The new Defibrillator Machine, which will soon be ready for use by the local community, was funded by the people of Bethesda. Their vision was for it to be something to serve the community, so they came forward and donated the money so the church could buy it and get it installed.

It will be registered with Rotherham Ambulance service so anyone in need of a defibrillator machine simply phones 999. They will then be directed to the machine, given the code to unlock the box and instructed how to use it.

Bethesda Church, who feel privileged to have the Defib on site, are paying for the upkeep and maintenance for the next 5-7 years.
