Worship at The Square

Following our long period of closure due to Covid, we have now re-opened the church buildings for worship, and most of our services are now conducted live in church. Most of these are now also live streamed on YouTube, so you can join in online if you can't make it in person. See our Worship This Week page for up to date information. On that page, you can also find resources to help you in your worship at home, if that is your choice.

 

Worship Elsewhere

Other Opportunities for online worship in South Bedfordshire Circuit are listed on our Worship This Week page.

Trinity Methodist Church in Leighton Buzzard are holding weekly evening services at 6pm via Zoom. All are invited to join us.

Big Quiz Night +

Big Quiz Night

Saturday 19th November

On Saturday 19 November, hundreds of churches and thousands of people will unite for this ever-popular fundraising extravaganza. And we would love you to join in.

Building community. Spreading joy. Tackling extreme poverty. With the Big Quiz Night, we can do all three. It’s a great opportunity to get together again with friends, family, church, neighbours – everyone!

When you sign up, we’ll provide everything you need to make organising a quiz as easy as ‘one, two, three’. You’ll get all the resources and tips you need, and we’ll be in touch with you along every step of the way.

The best thing about the Big Quiz Night (even better than the cake I had at the quiz I went to last year) is that every pound raised will go towards an amazing cause: supporting local churches around the world as they lead their communities out of poverty.

We can’t wait to see you there.
 
With every blessing,
Hannah Dobbins
Big Quiz Night Manager, Tearfund
