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

I would just like to thank you for giving your care and assistance to my Grandson William last night in Mill Street. He was taken home safely and is OK but rightly embarrassed for the problem he caused. Once again, thank you.

On the night/very early morning of January the 29th/30th myself and four friends found ourselves to be very VERY cold killing an hour waiting for a taxi. Along came four of five very cosily dressed people, who were very friendly and were just having a chat with us. They told us they were the Bedford Street Angels. We were given flip flops (as inappropriate shoe choice had been discarded), scarves, hats and gloves. We cannot thank enough their kindness and generosity. By far the kindest people I have met, trying to help others on a saturday night. Thank you so much Bedford Street Angels, the time you give up to help other people has truly warmed all of our hearts.

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.
