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. The wearing of a face covering in church is now optional. We are live streaming our 10.30am service most Sundays via Zoom. Visit the Services page for more information about services in church and also for the Zoom link and phone numbers.

Teas In Church
Our very popular summer season of ‘Teas in Church’ in St Mary’s, Oakley gets under way for 2022 this Sunday, 22nd May. Running every Sunday (except for Jubilee weekend) until Sunday 18th Sept from 3.30pm- 5pm. New for this year are occasional musical groups to entertain whilst you tuck in to your home made cake and drinks. This Sunday we have a clarinet group to properly launch the new season. Every year our Teas in Church program raises much needed funds for the up keep of the beautiful church and all support is gratefully received. We hope to see you there!
