Our Senior Pastor NJ Simmonds and Assistant Pastor CA Simmonds

We are indeed proud and privileged to have Nathan and Clovette Simmonds as our leaders.

Nathan is the 2nd Pastor of Bethel Ipswich after being appointed and installed by his father Bishop Simmonds who is the founder of this ministry.

Nathan and Clovette have been married for over 30 years and have 5 children and 1 grandchild.

They both work tirelessly in ensuring the ministry is vibrant and take time to care for the whole membership.

Our Pastor and First Lady have complimentary ministries which support each other bringing a balanced and exciting future for the church.

Both are enjoying this new challenge and are busy ensuring that the church moves forward by God’s grace.

They are an example to others and always try to be available to assist others.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and support for this ministry.



The world is currently experiencing a pandemic which has changed the way we live and interact with each other.

Bethel Ipswich would like to give God thanks for all the Doctors, Nurses, Auxiliary Workers and all those who are helping to keep the country moving; you are appreciated.
