Welcome to the website of St Paul’s Church, Bedford

St Paul’s is a thriving parish church in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, set in the heart of the busy market and county town of Bedford. The large medieval and later church of cathedral proportions dominates the town, and exercises a ministry of welcome to thousands of visitors and pilgrims from far and wide each year.

We are an all-age congregation who seek to glorify God in worship through our flourishing choral, musical and liturgical tradition as we celebrate His saving love revealed in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are a thriving, active and committed church drawn from the immediate area and beyond, who endeavour to serve Christ and to share his love and Good News with others in our town and most diverse parish. The church is open every day and we exercise a ministry of worship, witness and inclusive welcome in the town centre with a special care for the vulnerable and needy.

Historically, St Paul’s has played a key part in the life of our nation and is today the Civic Church of the Borough of Bedford and the county of Bedfordshire, a focus for special commemorations and celebrations in the borough, county and wider community. We are also a central venue for concerts, recitals and exhibitions.

We do hope that you will enjoy our website and would like to visit us. You would be warmly welcomed. If you are a newcomer to the parish and would like more details, or you would appreciate a visit, please make yourself known to the clergy or the churchwardens at any service, or contact us. We look forward to welcoming you in person.

May God bless you.
