From Bedford Churches together
Priory’s Lent course for 2020 is
based on this film and gives us the
opportunity to reflect on what the
Christian faith has to offer in terms
of hope, redemption and new life.
Instead of GIVING something UP for
Lent, why not TAKE something UP
and spend some time sharing in this
course with friends from all the
North Bedford Churches Together?
Each week, the session will focus on
an extract from the film which will
lead us into biblical reflection,
prayer and discussion.
Watch the film
You can watch the whole film at
7.30pm on Wednesday 19t h
February at Priory or at 1.30pm on
Thursday 27th February at SS Philip

World Day of Prayer
On Friday 6th March 2020,
there will be two World Day of
Prayer services held in Bedford.
This year's service is prepared
by the Christian Women of
Zimbabwe who call us to 'Rise!
Take your mat and walk.’ The
service encourages us to reflect
on the difficulties and unrest
that have plagued their country
over many years. They share
the challengers they have met
and the hope they have for the
future and invite us to support
them as they continue their
often turbulent journey towards
full reconciliation. The services
include Bible readings, prayers
of thanksgiving and
intercession, meditations, songs
and hymns. The afternoon
service takes place at Miracle
Church of God in Christ,
Alexandra Road, Bedford at
2:00pm. The evening service
takes place at Christ Church
Bedford at 7:30pm.
