Betel Seventh-day Adventist Church is the oldest Seventh-day Adventist Church in Norway, founded in 1879.
Betel – A House of Prayer for All Nations!


Bible study at 10.00 AM and divine service at 11.15 AM every Sabbath (Saturday):

You are invited to our divine services every Saturday at 11:15 am. You are also welcome to join our Bible study before the service at 10:00 am. Akersgata 74, entrance from Thor Olsens gate (street), slightly towards the North in the centre of Oslo. Click here for a map. The sermons in Betel are either held in Norwegian with English translation available (on our new translation system!), or they are held in English with live translation into Norwegian from the pulpit.

The Betel SDA Church is an international or multicultural church. This you will realize when attending many of our worship services.


It is a familiar saying; «Give a man a fish and you feed him one day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for all his life.» This year, ADRA will focus on education, helping individuals to find work, and starting their own business. This is important for eliminating poverty. A few hours of your life is a small sacrifice, but these hours can make the lives of other people so much, much better. Please contact Grethe Deacon to take part in the ingathering for ADRA!


September 29 Autumn meetings in Bøler church – nothing happens in Betel!

Høstmøte i Bøler kirke sabbaten 29. sept

Speaker: Paul Birch Petersen.

This Sabbath there will be Autumn Meetings in The Bøler Church. The topics for the three sermons will be:

1) The Sanctuary theology – basic for the service of the early church

2) The function of The Holy Spirit for salvation, and

3) The concept of The Trinity as God the Servant.



There will be no programme in The Betel Church in Akersgata 74 this Sabbath. Instead we will gather for Autumn meetings together with members from the Cornelius and Ulsrud churches in Bøler kirke. The guest speaker for this event will be Pastor Paul Birch Petersen from Denmark, former professor of theology at Andrews University.

The programme will be as follows:

Friday – September 28, at 19:30:

Paul Birch Petersen will meet Ungdomslaget and others in Herrebadet.

Saturday – September 29:

10:00 Sermon by Pastor Paul Birch Petersen

TOPIC: The Sanctuary theology as basis for the early church’s ministries.

11:15 Divine Service by Pastor Paul Birch Petersen

TOPIC: The function of The Holy Spirit in salvation.

13:00 Lunch (food and drinks will be served to all).

14:15 Afternoon meeting by Pastor Paul Birch Petersen

TOPIC: Understanding the Triune God as servant.

15:30 ADRA concert by The Filipino singers and The Triangelos choir.

Children’s Sabbath School will be organized and there will be a special worship hour for children by Pastor Harald Giesebrecht and his assistants. The offerings during the Divine Service and the ADRA concert will be for ADRA Norway.



Every month, usually on the third Sabbath of the month, we gather to share a meal with a potluck after the divine service. This is an opportunity to create a stronger relationship and more fellowship between churchgoers. It would be great if you could bring a vegetarian dish for sharing in these potlucks. It would also be lovely if you share some tastes from your own home country, whether it be Norway or somewhere else.


November 17th.

Speaker: Willy Aronsen.
