For a number of years, we have been privileged to provide local people in crisis with hampers during the Christmas holidays. For 2017 we are building on the success of last year’s Christmas In A Box where we distributed 700 boxes, reaching over 1,600 people in Bedford.

Locally Bedford foodbank is seeing an increasing number of clients on a regular basis. Here at All Nations Church, we want to further support the foodbank’s work, helping their clients and other vulnerable people at Christmas.
There are a number of ways you can help out and be involved:
Option 1: One way you can help is by purchasing the items on this shopping list and donating them in an opened box wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper.
Option 2: Buy one or two items from the list and donate them to Christmas in a Box and we will make up a box for you.
Option 3: Donate the cost of a box (£30 for a large family or £15 for a small family). We will then purchase the contents on your behalf and make the box up. If you choose to give by cheque, please make your cheque payable to ‘All Nations Church, Bedford’ and place in an envelope marked ‘Christmas In A Box’. If you would like to give via electronic payment, please follow the details:

If you choose to get a box and fill it, or even donate a few items to the project, please return them to All Nations Church on:
Friday 8th December, 2pm - 4pm or
Sunday 10th December, 3pm - 6pm
So get a box, wrap it, fill it, and make a difference to the lives of local people in crisis this Christmas.
Thank you for your support
