Christ Church Halls

 

What's it all about?

We have built a new set of halls for our church and the local community but it's about much more than that. We are a worshipping community in the heart of the Castle Road and Devon Park area of Bedford. We want to share God's love through welcoming people into the buildings. We would love to welcome you to join us in worship or invite you to one of the many events that we arrange for the community in the halls.

 

Why have we done it?

 These new halls have been built to meet the needs of our local community

 1) They will meet the future needs of this community

 2) We outgrew the old halls

 3) They are sustainable and built to last

 4) We want to bless you with them

  

What Next?

Our new church halls are at the heart of our ministry at Christ Church. We use them for worship and for many other church and community activities including a knitting group, children's activity groups and meetings and activities for older people. We also hire to local people and community groups for meetings and events.

Christ Church Mission and Strategy 2016

During 2015 many of our congregation were involved in reviewing our Mission Statement and understanding in more detail what it means for us in practical terms both when we are at church and wherever we spend time during the week.

The result is our strategy: a long term, focussed view of our priorities and direction for 2016 and beyond.

On this page you can access documents and videos to help you understand our strategy and apply it to your own ministry. You will find things at varying levels of detail, depending on your preference.
