A Day out in Wicksteed Park for the Families and Children took place onTuesday 15th August - thanks for all those who supported it. It went really, really well. The weather was absolutely brill, sunny and warm. The families enjoyed themselves, they ran around, made their own pizza for lunch, laughed a lot, had cake and refreshment for afternoon tea, we gave them all £10 to buy a gift to take. Our aim accomplished they smiled, laughed and breathed for a day. Great atmosphere on the journey back and they wrote some great feedback.
This "Rebuilding Lives" campaign of LCoF (Luton Council of Faiths) and GRASSROOTS was to help people affected by the Grenfell Tower Tragedy in West London.In every crisis, we have had people in Luton, advising us on sending help.

Welcome… on behalf of Churches Together in Bedfordshire.
Bedfordshire is geographically small with a large and diverse population. Throughout the county, from the largest of towns to the smallest of villages, the Christian church is active. Because of our shared Christian faith, the churches in many areas of the county are forming deeper relationships and working more closely together to serve our local communities in a wide variety of ways.
Churches Together in Bedfordshire encourages these closer relationships through its vision that Christian mission and Christian unity belong together. Our County Ecumenical Development Officer, Anita Nancollas, works to support this vision, and would be very pleased to work with you in encouraging shared mission through Christian unity in your area of Bedfordshire.
I hope that you will find lots of useful information here about how the churches in Bedfordshire are committed to worshipping and working together in Christian faith. You can help to make this website even more helpful and informative by sharing your ‘Good News’ stories and asking us to publicise events and activities for you – so, please get in touch (see the Contact us section).
Whatever it is that brings you to this website, Churches Together in Bedfordshire hopes that you find your visit helpful, and we pray that God will bless you.

(Chair, Churches Together in Bedfordshire)

Prayers for Today
" A visible sign of the Churches' commitment as they seek a deepening of their communion with Christ and with one another, and proclaim the Gospel together by common witness and service. Its strength comes from people from different traditions finding new ways to work and worship together'. You are welcome to join us on our journey"
Church Leaders send sincere condolences - Statement in response to the Finsbury Park attack, 19 June 2017
We were shocked to learn of the brutal attack on worshippers leaving the Finsbury Park mosque in the early hours of this morning. We unreservedly condemn all acts of violence which seek to undermine our society and foster hatred and intolerance.
Jesus came among us as the Prince of Peace, and in his name and for his sake, we stand in solidarity with our Muslim friends.
We remember in our prayers those who have been injured.
We pray for the leaders of our communities and nation, and for those who work in our emergency services.
We pray too for those who perpetrate such acts that God may touch their hearts and minds with his love, forgiveness and compassion.
