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

Dear Angels.

I heard the tragic story of Robert this week on local media. It moved me to tears. Its extremely upsetting and difficult to understand how people could have behaved in such a way toward another human being (Robert). There is no understanding of such actions.

I wanted to write in support of you and let you know I applaud the positive action born from the event of Robert’s passing.

It is truly wonderful to hear of you helping other youngsters in the same circumstances. As a mother I realise how I worry when my own children (17 and 19) are out of an evening. They are all kids finding their way in what can be a dangerous world. The fact that you have replaced evil with love and compassion is amazing.

I would like to wish you luck and to thank you on behalf of the many parents and children you’ve assisted since 2007.

This world needs more folk like you.

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.
