Welcome to our website!

Our churches serve the north Bedfordshire villages of Milton Ernest, Pavenham and Thurleigh.

The buildings themselves are special and inspiring places, loved by many in our villages and beyond. But above all they are the spiritual homes where we gather to worship God in Jesus Christ - the greatest activity any of us can do. In normal times we have different activities going on during the week as well, including for our wider communities. I hope you will come and get to know us sometime soon – it would be great to see you!

Peter KayI hope you will find our website useful, and gives you all the information you need, but if you have any queries please do get in touch.

Every blessing,
