In accordance with Government Guidelines and appropriate Social Distancing Measures, the Chapel will re-open, God willing, on Sunday 5 July for morning and evening services. We are blessed to have a large Chapel including a balcony and therefore Visitors are very welcome. We do though recommend that those over 70 or who are shielding for health reasons, continue to worship through Live Stream from home, for the time being.

Contact Us

Hearing impaired

We now broadcast many of our Sunday sermons live in BSL interpretation on Facebook:

We would also be very pleased to welcome you at our meetings in person.  Please contact us in advance if you are hearing impaired and would benefit from the service or Sunday School being interpreted with BSL. We would love to hear from any deaf in the Bedford area who would be interested.

Our chapel is installed with an induction loop – hearing aid users can switch their hearing aid to the ‘T’ setting to benefit.

If you would benefit from a written transcript of any of the sermons you have found on our web site, please contact us and we will do our best to arrange this.
