There is now no legal requirement to wear a face covering to services. However in consideration for the safety of others, our stewards will wear face coverings and we ask you to wear one when entering, exiting and moving around the building, until in your seat for the service. Please feel free to keep your face covering on if you prefer. We will continue to use well-spaced seating around our large well ventilated chapel. If you have any concerns our door stewards will be happy to assist you.

During the further lockdown announced from 5 November, all our services will be broadcast online, God willing.  
Online Sunday school can be found here, and our Sunday services and alternate Thursday Bible Study can be found on YouTube.

Deaf or hard of hearing? Many of our sermons are now live streamed in British Sign Language. More Details >>

Deaf and hard of hearing

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 Deaf or hard of hearing 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.
