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

I would like to thank the two street angels that stood with me last night while I was waiting to be picked up from work. What you guys do is just wonderful.

Thank you to all the street angels that take their time to protect other people in need.

As part of the Best Bar None Awards scheme we have decided to award to Bedford Street Angels an Outstanding Contribution Award. The award is sponsored by FJF Licensing who have provided the sum of £150 as a monetary sum to accompany the award.

The Awards Evening was last night and Fran and Fred Gill were invited to attend. It came as a pleasant shock as we asked them to accept the award on behalf of the Street Angels. I hope we haven’t breached any protocol and the assembled attendees at the event felt the award was well deserved and wanted their appreciation to be passed on.

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
