WHO ARE BEDFORD STREET ANGELS?

As an organisation, we aim to provide teams of Christians to be available to everyone using the night clubs and other entertainments in Bedford Town Centre on weekend nights. This is done as an expression of Christian faith; partnering with God in prayer and action adds a dimension that sees communities and people transformed. God is far too big to be kept in a church building – as Christians we have chosen to live a life that seeks to make a difference – for the better. That difference needs to be made in the places where people are. FIND OUT MORE

It is extraordinary to believe that you are celebrating your first full year of service – congratulations. Seeing you the other day at committee level underlined the commitment and sacrifice of those God has called to the Street Angel team in Bedford. Each and every one of you is hand picked and chosen by God for this service. Your faithfulness and commitment should be recognised in this way tonight. Each of you is so special – you are the true VIP’s.

Watford Street Angels send their prayers for a long and continued presence of the people of God on the Streets of Bedford changing the lives of those they meet. Many blessings and hang onto God in all things.

I would like to thank you and the whole team we spent the night out with on Saturday 28th January. I know both Katie and I were amazed at the amount of incidents you get called to and those that you find. On the night one young man even said “I never realised that there were still people who genuinely cared about others”. This is a huge testament to the work that all the Street Angels do and the kind and caring nature with which you do it. I spent the night using social media making others aware of exactly what you do from dealing with incapable youths, providing water, flip flops and carrying battery packs to top peoples phones up with, ensuring those who are vulnerable get home safely and even giving warm drinks to those living on the streets.

I would like to thank you all again for a having both Katie and I and for giving us the opportunity to work with such a kind and dedicated team of volunteers.

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.
