Congratulations to Marcus Ottaviani on his appointment as curate at St Mary's Goldington from June 2020.
Becky Guynn is leaving her job as our Children's minister to go and work for IMPACT on 31st August. We want to give her a thanksgiving gift for all that she has done over the past three years, as well as to pray for and support her in her new role. If you wish to contribute to that thanksgiving gift, please place any gift (cash or cheques payable to “Christ Church Bedford PCC”) in an envelope marked “BG” in one of the collection baskets or pay directly by bank transfer (sort code: 40-52-40 Account No: 00020562 Ref: BG).
We are delighted that Becky and her family intend to remain worshipping with us and to continue to contribute to church life at Christ Church.
Your child and Holy Communion – Richard and Becky are keen to meet all parents/carers at a Q&A session regarding our consultation on children receiving Communion before Confirmation. Meet after the 10am service on Sunday 8th September in Room 5 (children are welcome either to join in the discussions or we will provide something to keep them entertained). This will give you the opportunity to find out more about what it means, why we are proposing it and to ask any questions you may have.
