WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY
Dear Angels. As a mother of a teenager who has started going out in Bedford in the evenings, I just want to say a huge thanks for your presence on the streets, keeping an eye out for these youngsters. My daughter has mentioned seeing you on patrol several times and it is so reassuring from my and her point of view. I’m sure it is an often thankless task and so far my daughter has not needed your help, so I’d just like to say your kindness is really appreciated! From a concerned mum who doesn’t want to clip her daughter’s wings as she grows up, but is eternally grateful to you Street Angels and all you do!

Up and down the country Street Angels and Street Pastors are making a significant and valuable contribution. Their work means that our towns are safer places, not least for those people who find they need support and a helping hand. I am delighted to commend the work of the Bedford Street Angels.

Message from the Management
Bedford Street Angels is a fantastic organisation, whereby volunteers are able to show the love of Christ in a very practical way to people they encounter on the streets of Bedford late on a Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday. Having patrolled with Bedford Street Angels since April 2010, I can testify to the many grateful people who have been helped by the Angels, either physically or spiritually. It is by the grace of God that Bedford Street Angels is accepted by the night time economy, being very much appreciated by the groups it works alongside, such as the police, landlords, door supervisors etc. With each volunteer's Christian understanding of life, they can bring hope and joy into sad and desperate situations, showing people that there is a God who loves them whatever their circumstances. It is a privilege and an honour to be a Street Angel, and I give God the glory for all that He has done in the past and will do in the future.Rebecca Bolt – Chair of BSA Management Committee
