WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY
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.

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
