What's it all about?
We have built a new set of halls for our church and the local community but it's about much more than that. We are a worshipping community in the heart of the Castle Road and Devon Park area of Bedford. We want to share God's love through welcoming people into the buildings. We would love to welcome you to join us in worship or invite you to one of the many events that we arrange for the community in the halls.
Why have we done it?
These new halls have been built to meet the needs of our local community
1) They will meet the future needs of this community
2) We outgrew the old halls
3) They are sustainable and built to last
4) We want to bless you with them
Our new church halls are at the heart of our ministry at Christ Church. We use them for worship and for many other church and community activities including a knitting group, children's activity groups and meetings and activities for older people. We also hire to local people and community groups for meetings and events.
