Bedford Moravian Church (Queen's Park)

Howard Avenue, Bedford MK40 4ED (1895)

The Queen's Park Congregation, Bedford


The Moravian work in Queen's Park began as a 'Mission' in 1893 undertaken by the Bedford Moravian congregation in St Peter's Street in the town centre. This was at the time when the Queen's Park area was being developed. 


windowThe present hall was opened for worship in 1895, and the congregation was formed two years later. The present church was added on to the hall in 1911. The congregation has therefore contributed over 100 years of work and witness in the Queen's Park area of Bedford.

Today the congregation is in fellowship with the Parish Church of All Saints in Queen’s Park and belongs to the Shalom Group of Churches in Queen’s Park, Biddenham and Bromham. The Church premises are also used by the Serbian Orthodox Church, the Bedford and District Model Railway Society, the Howard Family Group, the local Scottish Country Dancing Group and the Community Outreach Team from the Bedford and Luton NHS Trust. Rooms can be booked with the minister by other individuals and groups if available.

We would be delighted to welcome visitors to any of our services and activities.
