The Bethshan Church, Wyee is a ministry of Bethshan Ministries Ltd which is a member of  Aged and Community Services Australia, a peak body for aged care and is an affiliated member of Baptist Care Australia.

'Bethshan was founded by Elliot John and Ethel Rien as Bethshan Holiness Mission...They saw a great need to provide a place of rest for Christian workers to revive them spiritually and bodily and to establish a missionary training home in scriptural and practical holiness. - On the 1st May 1908 Mr & Mrs Rien took up a selection of approximately 120 acres of virgin bush and signed the property to a trust forming Bethshan Holiness Mission. Bethshan means "place of rest"'  In the 1960/70s a retirement village, nursing home and hostel were established. These were sold in 2020 to Baptist Care. Bethshan continues to provide chaplaincy services to the facilities. [Sourced from:].More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited.
