Here is a message from the Archdeacon of Bedford

5th May 2020

        Thank you for all that you are doing to ensure your congregation, and members of the local community, are cared for and looked after. May I thank everyone who has stepped up to the challenge of what it means to ‘be church’ in this ‘new world’ in which we find ourselves; livestreaming services, using social media, grasping ‘zoom’ meetings, and so much more. As I’ve sampled various online services and resources from different churches across the Archdeaconry I’ve been amazed and thankful for the creativity and willingness of people to use these technical resources to demonstrate something of the light of Christ to their community.

Please do take care and stay safe.    God bless    

Venerable Dave Middlebrook – Archdeacon of Bedford
