Palm Sunday Procession 2019 in Bedford
At least 50 people of all ages from several Goldington churches and Daisy the Donkey took part. The procession, singing Easter Hymns, went from Tescos to Goldington Green War memorial where there was a short service. They then moved to the hall at Holy Cross Church for refreshements and fellowship. A great event!

Week Of Prayer For Christian Unity
On Sunday 20th January, marking the week of prayer for Christian unity, churches in Limbury, Luton, met together at St Augustine's Anglican Church for a shared afternoon service for the first time in many years. Members of the congregation led prayers and readings, Rev David Fleming from the Baptist church spoke, and Rev Jairo Nyaongo led the worship. It is hoped this will once again become an annual fixture.
This year the Scallop Mission Group (Sharnbrook, Clapham, London Rd, Oakley and Park Rd churches) collected and delivered 78 pairs of socks all containing various toiletries, and 20 hand knitted scarves to the SMART Prebend centre for the homeless in Bedford.

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.
