St Paul's stands at the very heart of the County Town of Bedford and serves both as a Parish Church and as the Civic and County Church of Bedfordshire. With its busy programme of daily services, the church seeks to be open for pilgrims and visitors alike, and to offer a haven of tranquillity at the centre of this busy borough.



 In addition to services, visitors are welcome each day between

10 am and 4 pm, unless specifically indicated in the Diary. 

On Saturdays, tea, coffee and light refreshments are available in the Anderson Room at the West End of the Church from 10 am   -  4.30 pm.
