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

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY

The Bedford Street Angels are a wonderful group of people who really do make a difference on our streets during challenging weekend nights. These committed volunteers are valued partners of Bedfordshire Police and they play an important part in making visitors to Bedford Town Centre feel safer and better able to enjoy socialising in the town.

The Street Angels are a reassuring presence on our streets and we shall continue to work in close partnership with them to improve community safety for all.

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.
