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!
We are very excited to be able to share with you that our Keynote Speaker for this year's Churches Together in Bedfordshire Form is Archbishop Angeolos of London who will talk to the Forum on "Christian Witness in the Middle East"
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.
