Central Baptist Church

We are a mainstream Christian Church located very close to the Park Street Campus of the University of Bedfordshire (opposite ‘Iceland’) and have lots on offer on Sundays and during the week.

A warm welcome awaits you at services on Sundays, which are held at 10.45. Generally the morning is an all-age service. We hold monthly lunches after the service on the third sunday of each month - students are most welcome and warmly invited to stay and make friends.

On Sunday evenings the emphasis is on variety, with sessions on Christian beliefs, current issues, Christian impact in today’s world, and sometimes a visiting speaker with a specific area of expertise.

We have a Friday night Bible study, held locally. An introduction to the Christian faith, the Alpha Course, as shown on TV and used by hundreds of thousands of people world-wide, is often run, and open to all comers.

Every other Wednesday night, we have an International Fellowship,here at the church. A chance to get together and share the word of God, Fellowship and also time to get to know one another. There's more information here.

Open Door’ serves very reasonably priced meals on Wednesdays between 12 and 1.30. For international students who may wish to practice their English and meet people, we offer a 2 course meal for £1, with English conversation (or just come for the conversation!).
