Bromham, Oakley and Stagsden Churches Welcome You
Welcome to Bromham Benefice website!
The Benefice is made up of three rural parishes to the west of Bedford – Bromham, Oakley and Stagsden. Our three beautiful and ancient churches have been part of their communities for hundreds of years, and continue to provide a focus for Christian worship, growth and outreach.
We would love to welcome you to any of our services or events, so do come and get to know us; and please get in touch if you need more information about anything on this website, or you have a specific question.
If you wish to visit one of our churches outside service times please contact the relevant churchwarden or our Administrator who can arrange access (all churches are kept locked), please see our Who’s Who page for contact details.
Services in the next two weeks
It is worth looking at our website before leaving to attend any service or event in case the Covid situation means we have to make last minute alterations. Although it is no longer mandatory to wear a face covering in church it is recommended in indoor spaces and so we would ask that face coverings are still worn in our churches. Your co-operation in keeping everyone as safe as possible is appreciated. We are live streaming our 10.30am service every Sunday via Zoom. Visit the Services page for more information about services in church and also for the Zoom link and phone numbers.

We have reviewed the level of precautions in church following the ending of Plan B this week. There have been a number of recent cases within the congregations and so we are asking that face coverings continue to be worn in church, including for singing. Please help us to protect and reassure the vulnerable members of our churches by wearing a face mask. Many thanks.
