 We are collecting Good News!! Any to share?




 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.

" 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.

Church Leaders send sincere condolences - Statement in response to the Westminster attack, 22 March 2017

 The Presidents of Churches Together in England express sincere condolences to the bereaved families and friends of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attack that was perpetrated in Westminster yesterday, Wednesday 22 March 2017.

The Presidents pray for the healing of those injured, and for the wellbeing of our society in which all seek after and promote the common good in a spirit of love for our fellow human beings.

They pray too for Parliament, the police and the emergency services who responded with such bravery, professionalism and compassion, and who continue to support all those affected by this terrible attack.
