For the past few years the Church has been an active collection point for the Bedford Food Bank. During 2021 a total of 40.41kg of food was donated by Ampthill Methodist Church which will have provided 96 meals. In 2021, the generosity of the people of Bedford and the surrounding area provided enough food to enable the foodbank to feed 11,575 people, of whom 4027 were children. They were able to distribute 137,129.75 kilogrammes of food and toiletries. This provided 326,500 meals. They now have around 220 referral agencies who are ideally placed in the community to identify individuals and families who are in need and to distribute vouchers.
If anyone brings a donation for the Foodbank to the church please could you check the dates on the items to make sure they are not out of date. Sadly we cannot give out anything that’s past it’s use by date.
Food is usually taken to the warehouse in Bedford on a Wednesday afternoon.

We actively encourage and participate in various joint services and events with other local churches in Ampthill and surrounding villages, both Methodist and other denominations. We have regular joint services with Flitwick and Clophill Methodist churches. There are other joint events and services throughout the year, see the Events Page for details.
The church has pastoral visitors who are happy to visit church members and others in their homes if requested. Anyone who is sick and would like a home visit can contact the Pastoral Secretary via the Enquiries Form below or the Minister.
