Easter Cross 

Liddlington Easter Garden was in place for a week and averaged about 20 visitors a day for prayer and reflection. There were many more villagers who looked in through the railings. A palm cross and Easter Card from the church was delivered to every household. A large number of the palm crosses were displayed in peoples’ windows as  hoped.

There was a piece of scripture affixed to a log stump and an invitation to contemplate the events around Jesus’ death and resurrection.  There was a “tomb” that was opened on Sunday Morning when footprints and some discarded Roman armour and spears, no doubt left by fleeing soldiers, appeared!   More: Easter 2021

 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. We work to support this vision, are 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.
